Upskill for new work opportunities with this no-cost toolkit

The University of Tasmania has launched a new unit – called the Work-Ready Toolkit – to help Tasmanians overcome the employment challenges created by COVID-19.

Since the crisis began, more than 20,000 Tasmanians have lost their jobs.

Following the successful community take-up of the UTAS Wellbeing Toolkit, the Work-Ready Toolkit covers a range of vital workplace topics such as networking, teamwork, interviewing skills and CV writing.

Students will explore a range of personal and career development skills, and come away with a unique set of techniques and strategies that can be applied to both their personal life and career.

The Work-Ready Toolkit is delivered fully online, with no cost or tuition fees. Tasmanians are encouraged to apply regardless of their educational or professional background.

“The Work-Ready Toolkit is suitable for anyone who is interested in developing skills, techniques and attributes to prepare or upskill for work in contemporary workplaces,” Lee Whiteley, Chief Executive, University College, said.

“Offered online, the unit has flexible options to suit your lifestyle and commitments.

“Throughout the 12 modules you will undertake in this unit, you will complete practical activities that will give you a real competitive edge and build your confidence.”
