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.
