The NSW Government is offering 21 fee-free TAFE NSW short courses to people who want to upskill during the COVID-19 pandemic.
Parliamentary Secretary for the Central Coast and Member for Terrigal Adam Crouch said COVID-19 has had a significant impact on everybody’s working and social life.
“The 21 fee-free courses will assist job seekers and workers on the Central Coast who want to diversify their skills during the COVID-19 pandemic,” Mr Crouch said.
“Providing these courses will also help businesses stay afloat and help people stay in jobs.
“TAFE has provided education and training to the Central Coast for more than 70 years and I know that these fee-free courses will be put to good use during these difficult next few months.”
Minister for Skills and Tertiary Education Geoff Lee said TAFE was committed to ensuring people have access to the highest quality education.
“The NSW Government understands that circumstances have changed for a lot of people and business owners, which means the way they work and how they conduct their business has also changed,” Dr Lee said.
“We also understand that many industries are in hibernation, so using this period to upskill for the future is time well spent.”
