The latest round of the Palaszczuk Government’s successful Skilling Queenslanders for Work (SQW) initiative is open said Chris Whiting MP.
SQW has been a hugely successful program getting local job seekers into work and training.
“Skilling Queenslanders for Work is producing fantastic results locally with hundreds of people having found work after completing an SQW program,” Mr Whiting said
“More than 13,000 Queenslanders have got into work because of the Palaszczuk Government’s Skilling Queenslanders for Work program,”
“I encourage any interested organisations to head to the Skilling Queenslanders for Work portal at www.training.qld.gov.au to find out how you can be a part of this outstanding initiative,” Mr Whiting said.
Community-based, not-for-profit organisations can apply online as well as local councils, and some Parents and Citizens associations. Eligible organisations have until 5pm on Thursday 12 April to develop and submit their Skilling Queenslanders for Work project applications.
Minister for Training and Skill, Shannon Fentiman said that “investment in programs like Skilling Queenslanders for Work is a great example of the Palaszczuk Government’s focus on jobs, with more than 13,000 Queenslanders getting into work because of the program”.
Skilling Queenslanders for Work funds skills development, training and job opportunities for unemployed, disengaged or disadvantaged Queenslanders through a suite of targeted skills and training programs.
