Since 2016 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.

These materials are for community organisations that are thinking about applying for Skilling Queenslanders for Work (SQW) funding, and are looking for some more information about the initiative. It provides an overview of the seven different programs that sit within SQW as well as information on how community organisations can play a role in this great initiative.

This is essential information if you have not applied for SQW funding before or if you want an update on the SQW program.
