The Tasmanian Government has announced a new program delivering online short courses and “skill sets” to help people find employment when the economy starts to recover from COVID-19.

By focusing on transferable skills, SKILL UP will enable job seekers to quickly upskill, reskill or gain new skills, so they are ready to enter employment or change careers.

SKILL UP will be offered through TasTAFE. Many options will be free and will take a few days to just weeks to finish. industry sectors covered include health, business, ICT and tourism and hospitality.
