Hundreds of fee-free training courses are now available for school leavers, young people and job seekers through the NSW Government’s Skilling for Recovery initiative.
The courses come from the $320 million committed to delivering 100,000 fee-free training places providing anyone impacted by the COVID-19 pandemic with the opportunity to investigate fee-free training options.
Enrolments are now open for in-demand skills leading to career pathways in areas such as aged care, nursing, trades, IT, community services, logistics and accounting.

LEVEL 1 WATER RESTRICTIONS LIFTED
Level 1 water restrictions for households have been lifted and replaced with Water Wise Guidelines.
While we want everyone to enjoy water, we need to remember to use it wisely as the recent drought reminded us how quickly dam levels can change.
Exemption permits for households and businesses will no longer be required under Water Wise Guidelines, unless for medical reasons. For more information, visit www.sydneywater.com.au/guidelines.
