As January draws to it’s sudden close and we leave the summer festivities behind, we are faced with the hard truth that it is high time to re join the working and studying grind and be an active and productive member of society. Those students that felt the engulfing constraints of 2020 and might not have access to a university education, nor the required experience for a job worth working. But what if there was a course open to all students wanting to explore their talents further? Courses that don’t cost an arm and a leg, and in fact don’t cost anything at all. Young people, school-leavers and job seekers are encouraged to get involved in the NSW Government’s Skilling for Recovery program.

There are more than 100,000 fee-free training places available for people in NSW as the workforce looks to reskill, retrain and redeploy in a post-COVID-19 economy. The only way to boost the economy is to boost employment and the training essential for the role and as such NSW premier Gladys Berejiklian has openly stated; “It doesn’t matter if you are a school leaver or looking for a new career path, I encourage everyone impacted by the pandemic to see what training options are available to them.”

Last year was catalysed for great job precarity, with Australia’s unemployment rate increasing to 6.9% by September of 2020. With a lack of job opportunities on the market, job seekers are encouraged to up-skill, ensuring they are of greater value to a future employer.

Say yes to free NSW training courses today and apply by the TAFE NSW website, the future is in your hands.
