A suite of 21 fee-free TAFE NSW short courses are available online to assist anyone across the state who wants to upskill during the COVID-19 pandemic.

Minister for Skills and Tertiary Education Geoff Lee said the pandemic response has had a dramatic effect on communities and working life, but these select courses will assist job seekers and workers looking to diversify their skills during these times.

"The TAFE NSW fee-free accredited courses will contribute to helping businesses stay in business and people stay in jobs," Mr Lee said.

"It's vital we keep people employed and ensure we have the ability to rebound when things do improve.

"We also understand that many industries are in hibernation, so using this period to upskill for the future is time well spent."

The courses include eMarketing for Small Business; Engaging Customers Using Social Media; Writing and Presentation Skills; Computing Skills; Team Leader Skill Set; and Administration Skills for Team Leaders.

TAFE NSW managing director Steffen Faurby said the organisation was committed to ensuring people have access to first-class, customised training to meet their needs.
