Applications for the 2017-18 first funding round for Skilling Queenslanders for Work closes 6 April 2017
Under the Queensland Government’s Skilling Queenslanders for Work initiative, community-based organisations can apply for funding to deliver projects that help to train unemployed or underemployed people in the community, and assist them in seeking long-term and secure employment.
The projects focus on building the skills of young people, Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander people, people with disability, mature-age job seekers, women re-entering the workforce, and people from culturally and linguistically diverse backgrounds.
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.
The first round of funding for 2017-18 opened on 22 February and will close at 5pm (AEST) Thursday 6 April 2017.
