TAFE NSW has launched a new Lockdown Learning course in risk management and WHS, giving jobseekers the chance to upskill or kick-start a new career.
More than 20,000 people have already enrolled in 25 fee-free Lockdown Learning courses, with almost 10,000 people studying with TAFE NSW for the first time.
TAFE NSW Managing Director Steffen Faurby said the new Statement of Attainment in Risk Management and WHS is open to 100 people and will provide essential skills to support businesses as NSW begins to reopen.
“TAFE NSW is proud to offer customised training to help our businesses, our communities, and our economy to bounce back from this pandemic,” Mr Faurby said.
We know there will be a need for these skills as COVID-19 restrictions ease and businesses begin to resume or increase their operations. Our Statement of Attainment in Risk Management and WHS is particularly pertinent with our increased focus on managing health and safety, adding value for all sectors of industry.”
Mr Faurby said across NSW, more than 120,000 people have enrolled in TAFE NSW short courses since they were first introduced in April 2020 as a response to the COVID-19 pandemic.
“Our suite of free online and virtual courses has assisted thousands of people to use their time in lockdown wisely and upskill themselves or their staff, enhance their job prospects, or begin retraining for a new career,” Mr Faurby said.
“We have a long and proud history of training the state’s workforce and now more than ever, it is vital to provide the skills people need to get back to work and drive the return of business and industry.”
