SKILL UP for your future!

At TasTAFE, we know some people have been doing it tough during the coronavirus period, so we’ve pulled together a program of online short courses and skill sets, many of which have NO FEES!

SKILL UP will allow you to quickly upskill, reskill or gain new skills, get ready to enter into employment, or prepare yourself to change careers once the economy starts to recover.

Short courses and skill sets on offer cover a range of industries including Health, Community Services, Business, and Hospitality and Tourism – as well as a number of skills sets designed to get you job-ready.

Most of the skills you’ll learn from SKILL UP will be transferable across industries, and you’ll also have the opportunity to gain credit for the units you complete, so that you can continue on into a full qualification at the start of 2021 – if you want to!

If you have lost your job as result of the impacts of COVID-19 you may be eligible for Rapid Response Skills Training Support Funding.
