The NSW Government will soon deliver an additional 100,000 free TAFE and VET courses over the next four years and will build a new $80 million TAFE campus in Western Sydney.
70,000 new fee-free courses will be made available for young job seekers taking on traineeship and 30,000 free TAFE places for mature aged workers seeking retraining or re-entry into the workforce.
The new Western Sydney TAFE will aim to produce 700 new tradies each year and deliver specialised training in construction trades.
