Looking for something to fill your time (that's not live streaming koalas or re-watching Tiger King over and over again)? TAFE NSW has this morning, Monday, April 6, released 21 online short courses that you can home complete at home — without spending a cent.

Announced by NSW Premier Gladys Berejiklian, the free courses are to help people diversify their skills during the COVID-19 pandemic. The fee-free accredited courses are open to people over 17 who live or work in NSW and are an Australia or NZ citizen, permanent resident or humanitarian visa holder.

If you tick those boxes, you can grow your digital skills with Engaging Customers Using Social Media or eMarketing for Small Businesses, increase your medical knowledge with a S2/S3 Pharmacy Training or up your management nous with the Team Leader Skill Set. Courses range in commitment from 3–11 hours a week for up to 26 weeks.

These new courses add to TAFE NSW's existing fee-free short courses, which are available to those impacted by this season's devastating bushfires and women looking to launch a small business. Early last year, NSW Government also announced it was subsidising up to 100,000 TAFE courses and apprenticeships under its Smart and Skilled program.

TAFE NSW has paused face-to-face courses until at least Monday, April 27.

To find out more about and enrol in one of TAFE NSW's fee-free online short courses, head to the TAFE NSW website.
