Minister for Employment, Workforce, Skills, Small and Family Business,Stuart Robert, said “that while this National Skills Week would be held virtually, a skilled career promised significant opportunities out in the real world.”

“This National Skills Week is a chance for all Australians to consider having a crack at vocational education and training and remind everyone about the amazing opportunities a skilled career can generate for you and your family,” he said.

“These opportunities are guaranteed by the Morrison Government which is backing Australians to take up new skills with the highest spend on skills and training in Australia’s history, $6.4 billion just this financial year,”

“National Skills Week is a chance for school leavers, job seekers and anyone wanting a new career to consider a new pathway so I’d encourage everyone to take advantage of the webinars and events taking place across the country, many of them accessible online,”
