NSW Government Skilling for Recovery

Skilling for Recovery

NSW Government has announced the Skilling for Recovery program under the JobTrainer Fund to minimize the unemployment caused by COVID-19 as part of COVID-19 recovery plan. The main target of the plan is to focus to reskill, retrain and redeploy the workforces to industries where there are skills shortages and create more employment opportunities. The Skilling for Recovery will help you to retrain or up-skill to enhance your identifications/credentials.

I have always dreamed about becoming a nurse and wanted to get my foot in the door to get a feel of what it would be like. I am so glad I signed up and completed my certificate III in Individual support with ANTS as it has inspired me to further develop my skills.

The teachers are really supportive and go out of their way to help in any way they can.

Studying with ANTS has allowed me to continue work while I study, and the environment is comfortable supportive and positive.
