What is the 500 Jobs in 500 Days initiative?
500 Jobs in 500 Days is a campaign to place 500 qualified, job-ready TAFE Australia Civil College students into jobs within 500 days.
How will it work?
We’ll be bringing together the activities of all our partners, networks and students from Penrith through the North Coast (NSW) region and into Southeast Queensland to work with employers to establish apprenticeships, take on new staff and help place our graduates into the roles they’ve trained for.
