Skilling Queenslanders for work
Thousands of job seekers are benefitting from the Skilling Queenslanders for Work initiative.
This valuable program provides funding to community organisations and local councils to run training and employment projects, helping job seekers develop vital skills and improving their chances of finding work.
A range of Queenslanders, including young people, women re-entering the workforce, people from culturally or linguistically diverse backgrounds, people with a disability, Aboriginal people and Torres Strait Islander people, and mature-age job seekers can get assistance to overcome the barriers they face when looking for jobs.
Many employers are also reaping rewards from the initiative. Queensland businesses that hire someone who has completed a Skilling Queenslanders for Work project in an apprenticeship or traineeship may be eligible for a Work Start incentive payment.
