Summer Skills

Kickstart your career with short summer skills courses that you can learn online at your own pace or at a location near you


With the HSC all done and dusted in early November, you will probably have a bit of time on your hands. What better way to use that time than to test out an in-demand industry, get a taster of a future course and gain some valuable skills along the way with some fee-free skills training over summer?

The Summer Skills program has been designed specifically with school leavers in mind. The program allows you to dip your toes in to the vocational training world by exploring courses that interest you and help to gain valuable skills to take with you wherever you want to go.

That’s why the NSW Government is offering fee-free, industry aligned short courses for young people aged between 16-24 who have left school and want to learn new skills.

Heaps of courses and locations are available across a range of vibrant growth sectors including early childhood education, care sectors, trades, hospitality, agriculture, construction, business, fitness, digital literacy and more.

Learn skills for real jobs, build your resume and join school leavers across NSW planning for their future.
