New Education and Training Model (NETM)
The Western Parkland City is a fast-growing centre for jobs and innovation.
With the development of the new Western Sydney International Airport and surrounding Aerotropolis, industries such as advanced manufacturing, defence and aerospace, pharmaceutical manufacturing, freight and logistics, and agribusiness are growing.
Building skills for the future
The skills needed to fill jobs in emerging industries are rapidly changing. With such fast-evolving technology, our world-class education and training system can’t always keep pace.
The New Education and Training Model (NETM) fills this gap by working in partnership with industry and leading education providers to deliver micro-credentials – short, targeted training courses of about 40 hours each – that allow workers to quickly build the knowledge, skills, and experience that employers need.
For learners, NETM micro-credentials allow you to upskill and take advantage of exciting new career opportunities, right on your doorstep.

Western Sydney is taking off for the 22nd century.
The new Western Sydney International Airport and the Aerotropolis are creating tremendous opportunities for businesses and job seekers.
The Aerotropolis, which includes the new Western Sydney Airport, will attract key industries such as advanced manufacturing, defence and aerospace, pharmaceutical manufacturing, freight and logistics, and agribusiness.
All these industries are experiencing continuous technological advances needing people with specific and changing skill sets.
But how can we make sure that the Western Parkland City workforce has the skills to take up this once-in-a-generation opportunity?
With such rapid change, our world-class education and training system can’t always keep pace with the fast-evolving technology.
That’s why the NSW Government has funded a New Education and Training Model – the NETM.
This revolutionary model is flipped... instead of education and training providers designing courses for industry, the NETM puts industry in the driver’s seat to co-develop micro-credentials with educators.
Micro-credentials are easily accessible, small-scale, 40-hour courses learners complete to build knowledge, skills and experience across multiple professions and facilitate lifelong learning.
Employers can enrol current employees to upskill with a single micro-credential or set of micro-credentials which are in line with their business objectives, helping to drive growth and innovation.
The goal of the NETM is to assist employers to future-proof their businesses while helping employees and job candidates qualify for exciting high-skilled jobs.
It’s also going to give industry the confidence to invest in this future knowing there is a growing talent pool of workers with the skills they need.
For a limited time, industry can take advantage of this new initiative for free, so act quickly.
