ON 16 JULY 2020, Prime Minister Scott Morrison announced the launch of the $2 billion JobTrainer Fund. The media release declared that

JobTrainer will ensure more Australians have the chance to reskill or upskill to fill the jobs on the other side of this crisis. COVID-19 is unprecedented but I want Australians to be ready for the sorts of jobs that will come as we build back and recover. The jobs and skills we’ll need as we come out of the crisis are not likely to be the same as those that were lost.
