A suite of 21 fee-free TAFE NSW short courses are available online to assist anyone
across the State who wants to upskill during the COVID-19 pandemic.
Member for Hornsby Matt Kean said the pandemic response has had a dramatic effect on
communities and working life, but these select courses will assist job seekers and
workers looking to diversify their skills during these times.
“TAFE NSW has been a reliable educational institution for more than 130 years
supporting communities all across NSW. These fee-free courses will be put to good
use in the Hornsby area during this challenging time,” Mr Kean said.
Minister for Skills and Tertiary Education Geoff Lee said TAFE is 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,” Mr Lee said.
“The TAFE NSW fee-free accredited courses will contribute to helping businesses
stay in business and people stay in jobs. It’s vital we keep people employed and
ensure we have the ability to rebound when things do improve.
“We also understand that many industries are in hibernation, so using this period to
upskill for the future is time well spent.”
The 21 short courses include:
- eMarketing for Small Business;
- Engaging Customers Using Social Media;
- Writing and Presentation Skills;
- Computing Skills;
- Team Leader Skill Set; and
