Smart and skilled

Social and economic upheaval has challenged Australian small businesses like never before.

North coast education flood recovery support package

The NSW Government’s North Coast Education Flood Recovery Support Package includes actions to alleviate financial pressures on students and their families coping with flood recovery in the flood-affected local government areas (LGAs) of Ballina, Byron, Clarence Valley, Kyogle, Lismore, Richmond Valley and Tweed. The package aims to support students to complete their training as well as increase their access to training.

As part of this package, Training Services NSW is rolling out an initiative related to fee reimbursements for students enrolled or in training during the flood period, one related to fee waivers for new students and a third one in the form of one-off support payments for Smart and Skilled providers delivering training to affected students.

The three initiatives will be available for eligible students who have been enrolled with a Smart and Skilled provider for a full qualification(s) under Smart and Skilled.

To be eligible, students must either reside, work, or study in a location within the seven flood-affected LGAs.
