The NSW Government’s fee-free TAFE NSW short courses has passed 100,000 enrolments since being introduced in April as a response to the COVID-19 pandemic.

Premier Gladys Berejiklian said the enthusiasm for upskilling during this period of restrictions shows TAFE NSW is a vital educational provider.

“To pass 100,000 enrolments in such a short time is truly a remarkable result. Every part of NSW has embraced the 21 fee-free courses on offer in some way,” Ms Berejiklian said.

“This program is assisting people look for a new job or allowing career progression at a time when we are facing enormous economic and social challenges.”

Some key points about the initiative include:

Minister for Skills and Tertiary Education Geoff Lee took the opportunity to note the Queensland Labor Government copied the idea to offer fee-free TAFE courses as part of their COVID-19 response.

“As happy as I am for the Queenslanders to pass 7000 enrolments at their last check, if it was a State of Origin match, the score would show a big win for the Blues by a mere  93,000 enrolments,” he said.
