The Snowy Valleys Skills Development Service (SVSDS) is a program designed to support Snowy Valleys forest and timber workers as they adjust to changing job requirements brought about by bushfires. Through the service, timber industry workers and employers based in the Snowy Valleys can access assistance to undertake workforce development planning and relevant vocational training programs provided through TAFE NSW and other training providers. The SVSDS program aims to support a minimum of 40 businesses and 400 displaced workers with employment-focused upskilling and training, so that they have the skills required to capitalise on business and employment opportunities in the region.
The SVSDS program will run from July 2021 to June 2023.
SVSDS is jointly funded by the Commonwealth and the New South Wales Government under the Bushfire Local Economic Recovery Fund.
