NEW FREE COURSES TO SUPPORT XXXX IN PANDEMIC

A total of 13 new fee-free TAFE NSW short courses are available online to assist anyone across the State who wants to upskill during the COVID-19 pandemic, following an overwhelming response to the initial suite of courses announced earlier this month.

The NSW Government will use these new courses to replace those which have reached enrolment capacity to ensure there are still 21 accredited courses available for people to study through TAFE NSW.

Michael Johnsen MP, Member for Upper Hunter strongly encouraged locals to visit the TAFE NSW website and explore the fee-free short course options.

“More than 84,000 people across NSW have enrolled in these fee-free courses so I recommend the people of Upper Hunter to take some time and review them,” Mr Johnsen said.

The 13 new short courses include:

  • Leading Teams;
  • Digital Security Basics;
  • Build your Digital Literacy with Coding;
  • Create a Brand Presentation; and
  • Undertaking Projects and Managing Risk.

Minister for Skills and Tertiary Education Geoff Lee said more than 33,000 people who enrolled in the fee-free courses were studying at TAFE NSW for the very first time.

“The NSW Government is committed to providing opportunities for people to upskill so that they can get the promotion or job they want once this pandemic ends. I encourage everyone to use this time to increase their skills,” Mr Lee said.
