Regional Training and Employment Strategy

The Regional Training and Employment Strategy (RTES) supports economic growth in rural and regional NSW by increasing participation in training linked to actual job opportunities.

Retrenched Workers Assistance provides information, advice and skills assessment to assist retrenched workers and those affected by company downsizing to determine the skills they need for future employment. The program may provide training in part or full qualifications needed to obtain a new job. Training Services NSW collaborates with local agencies and support services to assist affected workers. View the Retrenched Workers Assistance information sheet.

Training Services NSW can assist in placing apprentices and trainees affected by company downsizing and closures with new employers through the Continuing Apprenticeships Placement Service (CAPs).


For more information contact a local Training Services NSW Centre on 13 28 11.
