Mid-year training starts with My Skills

The best place to find out about thousands of training courses that start mid-year is the Gillard Government’s updated My Skills website.

My_skills.jpgMy Skills is the first directory of its kind for vocational education and training. It brings together information on more than 3,000 courses and 4,800 training organisations across Australia.

My Skills has been taken to a new level with information on about 6,000 training locations across the country.

Minister for Higher Education and Skills Sharon Bird said My Skills was a practical measure to help people improve their skills and find a job.

“The Labor Government wants everyone to be able to access high-quality training and we know that half the battle can be finding the right course and provider,” Minister Bird said.

My Skills is a single point where people can search for courses and training organisations available locally.

My Skills is a valuable addition to the Labor Government’s drive to ensure this country has the skills it needs now and in the future.”

It is the culmination of years of work by the Government and by training providers, who have provided and are constantly updating essential information on their institution, campuses and courses.

“I encourage anyone considering enrolling in mid-year courses to visit My Skills to help make an informed choice about their future,” Minister Bird said.

The popularity of the website has increased as more information is added with a 43 per cent increase in unique visits during March and April this year.

My Skills was launched in October 2012 to help school leavers, job seekers, employees and employers find the training that best suits their needs.
