Tasmanian Manufacturing Pilot Program

Building the skills of your current and future workforce.

About this program

Funding support has been provided by the Commonwealth Department of Education to offer a suite of ‘micro credentials’ (short credit bearing courses) to the Tasmanian Manufacturing sector. This includes a range of skills that are required to interface with technology and support change over time.

The program includes a series of short (10 hour) fully online, self-paced courses. In early 2023, a number of face-to-face practical workshops will also be available to participate in.

The intent of this pilot program is to:

  • Support businesses to upskill their workforce in a manageable way – shorter time commitments, immediate areas of skill need, stackable credentials over time.
  • Demonstrate the value of these ‘future skills’ to the business with a shorter ‘investment’ of employee time
  • Expand the reach and benefit of the program to many Tasmanian businesses

This opportunity is free of charge for eligible Tasmanian small to medium businesses (those employing 200 or less employees).
