We are all aware how difficult and demoralising it can be for young people to find employment. That’s why the Palaszczuk Government is partnering local councils and community groups to give unemployed and underemployed young people a leg up so they’re skilled and prepared to for job opportunities in their area.
Community groups can apply now for Queensland Government Skilling Queenslanders for Work grants. The grants fund support ranging from nationally recognised training to certificate III level, paid work placements, job preparation skills, case management and career advice.
There’s more information at http://www.training.qld.gov.au/sqw including eligibility criteria, templates and guides.
Applications will close on 20 October 2016.
