The NSW government has committed to 103,000 additional free training places as part of a $100 million economic recovery package to turbocharge skills training and future-proof the workforce.
The recovery package contains new funding to extend the successful JobTrainer program, hundreds of fully funded school-based apprenticeships and traineeships for Indigenous students, and funding for new ICT traineeships in the public sector. Read more at Training Services NSW.
Please be aware that there is a high level of scamming activity around COVID-19 rules and regulations and, in particular, grants and relief. These scams are increasingly sophisticated and many involve impersonation such that they may appear to come from legitimate advisors (such as Allan Hall).
