The Queensland Government's Skilling Queenslanders for Work initiative represents a significant investment of $420 million over six years to support up to 54,000 Queenslanders into work through a suite of targeted skills and training programs.
The Minister for Training and Skills approved the establishment of seven Regional Priority Jobs Committees. These committees advise the Department of Employment, Small Business and Training (DESBT) on priorities for funding under Skilling Queenslanders for Work and one committee is located in each of the DESBT region. The committees is an instrumental forum for ensuring funding decisions are made locally and provide on-the-ground perspective of what skills are needed in local labour markets.
