Employment Preparation Short Courses

TasTAFE are delivering a collection of free short courses to give you the opportunity to pick up important skills in computing, job seeking, applying for work and project fundamentals. These courses are design for adults who need a little guidance and support to really upskill and prepare for employment. We recommend you do all courses as a collection, as each course complements another with all skills learned feeding into the next. However, if something catches your eye, each course also stands independently so you may select the most appropriate one for you. If you do select to do all courses as a collection you will attend Campbell St Campus each Tuesday and Thursday from 9.30am – 2.30pm.

There are currently no offerings for this course.

Courses start in semester 2. Details of locations and dates will be populated soon.
