National Careers Week runs from 18–24 May and is highlighting how important it is to keep reskilling and upskilling to develop your career. As our world changes, in the context of challenges like COVID-19, this has never been more important.

The spread of COVID-19 has shown that you never know what’s around the corner and how skilled people can make all the difference. Whether it’s healthcare workers, aged and disabled carers, freight and logistics workers or science and information technology professionals, these are jobs that matter, now and into future.

COVID-19 is not stopping people securing nationally recognised qualifications — in fact, so much training has moved online that it gives people flexibility and opens up more opportunities for people to study than ever before.

Vocational education and training

Vocational education and training (VET) can help you keep up with the future of work, because the courses are driven by what employers need. A VET qualification can get you into important jobs. You can search around 2000 online offerings on My Skills to get nationally accredited training.
