Right skills, right now: TAFE NSW to reskill locals to help kickstart post-COVID recovery

TAFE NSW will play a leading role in helping Moruya locals reskill for the jobs of the future as part of a landmark NSW Government initiative, TAFE NSW Managing Director Steffen Faurby has announced.

As a key plank of the state’s COVID-19 Recovery Plan, the NSW Government has committed close to $160 million to match the Australian Government’s JobTrainer fund.

Enrolments for job seekers and school leavers are now open at TAFE NSW through the JobTrainer and Summer Skills programs.

The programs offer hundreds of fee-free and low cost courses targeted at growth employment sectors such as healthcare, early childhood, community services, food sciences, agriculture, horticulture, accounting and finance, and building trades.

Mr Faurby urged locals to investigate how the JobTrainer and Summer Skills programs could help them gain the skills to be in-demand in the post-COVID jobs market.

“We have to skill the workforce to take advantage of future job opportunities which may be very different to jobs in the pre-COVID economy,” Mr Faurby said.

“TAFE NSW is absolutely committed to ensuring NSW remains the most highly skilled workforce in the country.”

“We are working closely with industry to ensure we are delivering a pipeline of job-ready graduates armed with the latest skills to help kick-start the economy,” Mr Faurby said.

TAFE NSW’s Summer Skills fee free short course program is specifically designed to help school leavers bridge the gap from school to work, or school to further study.

“The Summer Skills program is a great opportunity for young people to get a taste of different industries and ensure they get a head start in the changing jobs market,” Mr Faurby said.

Eligibility criteria for Job Trainer and Summer Skills apply. To find out more visit www.tafensw.edu.au or call 13 16 01.
