For the past four years, QCOSS has partnered with the Queensland Department of Employment, Small Business and Training to deliver webinars and workshops across the state to help community-based organisations respond effectively to funding applications for the Skilling Queenslanders for Work (SQW) initiative.

Community-based not-for-profit organisations can apply for funding to start projects in local communities that provide direct assistance to people in Queensland who need support to gain the qualifications and skills needed to enter and stay in the workforce.

While the QCOSS-led workshops and webinars focus on Skilling Queenslanders for Work initiative, the tips learned are designed to be used more broadly to help organisations with other funding proposals or grant applications.

If you attended a workshop in the past and want to access the resources and links contact QCOSS for the password.
