Applications are now open for Fee-free TAFE courses that provide skills for sectors suffering worker shortages.
Around 3800 free places will be available for Tasmanians as part of a $23 million Skills Agreement between the state and federal governments.
TasTAFE Acting CEO Fiona Le Gassick said fee-free courses ranged from short skill sets to Certificate IV qualifications.
“Fee-free TAFE places are available in some of our most popular study areas, providing job-ready skills for industries where there is a high demand for jobs.
“Via an agreement between the Tasmanian and Australian governments, TasTAFE will be able to provide fee-free places to those wanting to train, retrain or upskill.”
Ms Le Gassick said the free courses were available to Tasmanian residents who hold citizenship, permanent residence, or have an eligible VISA.
“TasTAFE will ensure that everyone enrolling in a fee-free course has the best chance of completing their chosen course, through a new student support model.
“We see greater access to our training as a win for our learners, industry and the community.
“As we know education and training is a game changer for many people, and we look forward to providing greater access to TasTAFE’s courses in 2023.”
