Agriskills Entry Program
The Agriskills Entry Program is an exciting new initiative developed in conjunction with Fruit Growers Tasmania. Consisting of short, sharp skill sets, the program enables new and existing workers to get ‘job ready skills’ required by industry.
This initiative is a part of Tasmania’s COVID-19 recovery plan and will help build Tasmania’s fruit growing, vegetable, livestock and dairy workforces.
