Skilling Queenslanders for Work provides training to people who are under-utilised or under-employed through targeted programs delivered by community organisations with not-for-profit objectives, in partnership with training providers.

Funding is available to provide direct assistance to those Queenslanders that need support to gain the qualifications and skills needed to enter and stay in the workforce.

Community-based not-for-profit organisations ca n apply for funding to start projects in local communities across Queensland. Local councils and school Parents and Citizens’ and Parents and Friends’ associations are also able to apply for funding under some programs.

There are two regular funding rounds each financial year, taking applications for five of the initiative’s seven programs.

The second round of funding for 2017-18 opened on 20 July 2017 and will close at 5pm (AEST) on Thursday 14 September 2017.
