The NSW Government has announced an additional 3,000 training places for people across NSW to skill up at home during lockdown.
An extra 60 short courses are now on offer to study for free.
Minister for Skills and Tertiary Education Geoff Lee said, “We know there is great demand for training at the moment, which is why we have added additional free courses and more training places so people can come out of lockdown with skills they can take with them into the workplace.” Mr Lee went on to explain, “The free courses are available to anyone across the State who is unable to work due to public health orders. We have specifically targeted those LGAs and suburbs in lockdown and are working with local communities and industry to understand what skills are in demand and where shortages exist.”
The training is being funded through the JobTrainer program, which has already seen more than 120,000 people in NSW skill up since it was announced in October last year.
