Match and Upgrade Your Skills with My Skills

The Australian Government’s My Skills website has been recently upgraded to focus on online training for Australians looking to upskill during the COVID-19 pandemic. The website provides a national directory of VET organisations and courses that helps consumers search and compare VET courses and training providers.

Website users can search the increased online offerings of registered training organisations (RTOs) and vocational education and training (VET) options currently available to continue to train for the future. For those in the New England, Mr Joyce said this will provide an excellent opportunity to study a wide variety of course offerings from a range of training institutions around the country and potentially even something that may not have been available to them before.

“The online space opens the door to VET courses and nationally recognised qualifications not only in our own backyard but right around Australia,” Mr Joyce said. “Whether you’re upskilling or looking to retrain and change careers altogether, VET courses are a great option and highly sought after in rural and regional areas like our own. Remaining adaptable and flexible with our employment options during these challenging times is vital to our long-term success.”

The My Skills website complements the existing Skills Match Tool which provides intuitive career guidance to choose or change careers based on the user’s previous work experience and qualifications. This includes providing information on a career’s likely income, whether the industry is in growth and what future pathways are available.
