$60 million will be allocated to deliver a revamped Skilling Queenslanders for Work program in 2015-2016. The Department of Education and Training will be conducting information sessions throughout a number of metropolitan and regional locations.
Projects under Skilling Queenslanders for Work will be delivered by community based organisations with not-for-profit objectives and Registered Training Organisations. Local councils, school Parents and Citizens’ associations will also be able to apply for some programs under the initiative. The first round of funding will open on May 1 and close on June 19 this year.
Community based organisations with not-for-profit objectives in FNQ, RTO’s and Councils are encouraged to register their interest to attend the information session in Cairns by contacting the Training Queensland Customer Centre on 1300 369 935.
Program guidelines will be available in the near future on www.training.qld.gov.au
