“Beyond brilliant” is how ACE Community Colleges RTO Manager Robyn Keenan describes the NSW Government announcement on Fee Free training for young people in the Northern Rivers region this summer.

“What it all means is that school leavers and young adults have a truly rare opportunity to complete nationally recognised training in a skills area of increasing employment demand.

After a very-long year, a time that has tested the region’s resilience, this is perfect news for everyone wanting to start a career and connect with a pathway to successful employment.

I would encourage students and parents in the region to seize the day. The big bonus for ACE student is our College training is Online with student mentoring, practical workshops and placements all arranged for each student by our team. Students also have an opportunity to network with industry and showcase their skills.

Really this could be your reset or your getting started moment; whatever way you look at it Skilling for Recovery fee free training is a chance to change your world”, said Ms Keenan.

The Skilling for Recovery Training Initiative is part of a matched funding commitment of almost $320 million between the NSW and Australian Government’s under the Job Trainer Fund. Skilling for Recovery is a key component of the State’s COVID-19 Recovery Plan.

The program is designed to help job seekers retrain or up-skill and support school leavers entering the workforce for the first time. It will provide a combination of short and long courses for job seekers and young people, including school leavers at no cost.

If you are aged 25 or over and not currently employed OR aged 17-24 (regardless of employment status) OR at risk of losing your job, this could be your opportunity to complete a full certificate course at zero cost.

The NEXT STEP is to contact our Customer Care Team at ACE Community Colleges Lismore on 6622 1903 to discuss your eligibility and training preferences.
