NSW Government has announced the Skilling for Recovery program under the JobTrainer Fund to minimize the unemployment caused by COVID-19 as part of COVID-19 recovery plan. The main target of the plan is to focus to reskill, retrain and redeploy the workforces to industries where there are skills shortages and create more employment opportunities. The Skilling for Recovery will help you to retrain or up-skill to enhance your identifications/credentials. It fully supports if you have left school and want to enter into the workforce for the first time.

You will be eligible free training under Skilling for Recovery funding by NSW government.

If you are:  

  • aged 16-24
  • an Australian citizen, Australian permanent resident, humanitarian visa holder or New Zealand citizen?
  • no longer at school?
  • living or working in NSW?

You will also be eligible if you: 

  • are an un-employed,
  • expect to be unemployed
    or
  • are out of work and receiving an income support payment.
