Skilling QLD For Work
The Queensland Government has reintroduced the highly successful Skilling Queenslanders for Work initiative, with an investment of $240 million over four years to support up to 32,000 Queenslanders into work.
Skilling Queenslanders for Work provides training to people who are under-utilised or under-employed, as well as building the skills of young people, Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander people, people with disability, mature-aged job seekers and people from culturally and linguistically diverse backgrounds.
Targeted programs focused on skills development will be delivered by community-based organisations. Local community ownership of projects is a cornerstone of the initiative's past success and will help to ensure future projects meet local skills needs and deliver positive skills development and employment outcomes for participants.
Skilling Queenslanders for Work is supported by a state-wide regional network, working closely and forming partnerships with community organisations, and local employers to determine local skills, entry-level industry and labour needs.
To best utilise this initiative, Managed Corporate Outcomes are partnering with Community Centres all over Qld to make our training programs easily accessible to those people eligible for this program.
