If you are not confident with reading, writing and mathematics, you may find it hard to get a job. You may also find it hard to do everyday things, like reading bus timetables and doing your banking.

The Skills for Education and Employment program can help you get the job you want by:

  • improving your reading, writing and mathematics skills
  • boosting your confidence.

We can help if you:

  • need literacy and numeracy training at basic or advanced levels
  • need advanced training for work purposes.

What kind of training can I do?

You can get up to 650 hours of free accredited training, starting at your own level and working at your own pace. Training is delivered flexibly through full-time or part-time hours, via face-to-face or distance training which allows you to still look for work or care for your family. A work experience component can also be included in some cases.

How can I access training?

To find out if you are eligible for this program and to get a referral, you should talk to the Services Australia or your local:

There are training organisations all around Australia that provide Skills for Education and Employment training. They are called 'providers'. Providers are Registered Training Organisations and include technical colleges, private providers and universities.
