In response to the COVID-19 pandemic, TAFE NSW in partnership with the NSW Government, is offering a range of fee-free short courses for NSW residents.

The new initiative inspires one to study online and take advantage of this down time to upskill and discover new opportunities to further their education, career or business.

Generously, there are 21 free short courses being offered which include eMarketing for Small Business, Engaging Customers using Social Media, Writing and Presentation Skills, Team Leader Skills, Team Leader Administration Skills and Computing Skills.

If you are considering taking advantage of this opportunity but feel it could be challenging without the face-to- face interaction or online study is new to you, here are some simple tips to help you develop good study habits, increase your motivation and reduce anxiety:

  • set short term and long-term goals, recognised and celebrate your achievements
  • plan and prioritise your task by effectively managing your time
  • study routinely, as this will reduce the risk of last-minute panic
  • study in a quiet environment, somewhere there is no distractions and you won’t be interrupted
  • manage stress by looking after yourself, eat and sleep well, exercise regularly and take time out

Whether you’re a career starter or career changer, TAFE NSW is delivering practical skills to make sure students are employable and keeping up with the needs of diverse industries that are in the hibernation period.

As well as the suite of COVID-19 courses, TAFE NSW are also offering a range of courses tailored to providing the skills needed to help rebuild bushfire devastated communities. For a full list of COVID-19 and bushfire relief free accredited short courses visit TAFE NSW
