Apprentices undertaking their training in NSW are already benefitting from the NSW Government’s fee-free apprenticeship package, only two months after its launch.
Fee-free apprenticeships will allow 100,000 apprentices throughout NSW to study and train for a fulfilling career while also addressing the State’s skills shortages.
The NSW economy is humming and, as a result, NSW has the best jobs market in the nation. We’re seeing record numbers of jobs being created, and we want to make sure we are equipping a workforce with the skills industry will need in the future.
Under the fee-free apprenticeship program new apprentices can study for free, attracting skilled workers into our booming jobs market and giving a generation of tradies a head start in their careers.
Fee-free apprenticeships benefit both students and employers and I encourage anyone thinking about upskilling or starting a new career to consider their options under the program and with TAFE NSW.
There are more than 120 different fee-free apprenticeship courses on the NSW Governments Smart and Skilled list in a range of industries.
Fee-free apprenticeships will change the lives of working Australian’s and give them skills and opportunities they can take through their lives.
This scheme is a win-win for budding tradies, employers and TAFE NSW.
