Free TAFE courses are being offered to Australians wanting to learn new skills while isolating at home.
The NSW Government said it would make 21 TAFE courses fee-free in a bid to help Australians stay productive at home during the coronavirus pandemic.
The courses, which can cost as much as $1,570 for 12 weeks of study, offer practical skills and experiences across a range of industries including administration, business and computing.
It comes as more than a million Australians face being unemployed, one in ten of the country’s working population of 12.5 million.
Premier Gladys Berejiklian announced the free courses during her press conference in Sydney on Monday morning.

‘We know the next six months are going to be difficult and what we have done today is announce that through TAFE there are 21 free courses you can do from home to upgrade your skills or to acquire new skills and this is good news,’ she said.
‘It means people can start preparing for when these difficult times are over.’
‘If you haven’t got a job or not working from home it is an opportunity for you to upgrade your skills or acquire new skills so you can enter or re-enter the workforce when you finish this difficult time.
There are a total of four administration skills courses, six digital skills courses on offer and two health and medical skills courses available for free.
There are also two leadership performance courses and five business skills courses available for people to do at home during isolation.
