Research suggests at least 23 per cent of Australians believe they don’t have the right skills for the future and more than three million workers are seeking a complete career change in light of the pandemic.
Almost overnight, COVID-19 transformed how we live, work, play, and learn. Higher and Vocational Education providers were among those hit first and hit hardest; campuses across Australia were shutdown, international students weren’t able to enter the country, and there was the need for an immediate shift from face-to-face to online learning.
On top of this, successful businesses across the nation shut their doors, with more than 80 per cent ceasing some or all commercial activity. As a result, large swathes of the population will require retraining and they’ll need it remotely.
Short courses will play a pivotal role as a means to retrain workers displaced during the pandemic and will support thousands of learners as we look to rebuild Australia’s economy.
