More funding for projects to help find jobs post COVID-19

Another multi-million dollar round of funding will go towards job-assisting projects for community organisations under the highly successful Skilling Queenslanders for Work program.

Skilling Queenslanders for Work funds skills development, training and job opportunities for job seekers, disengaged or disadvantaged Queenslanders through a suite of targeted skills and training programs.

More than 70 per cent of participants find work, take on further training or return to school around 12 months after exiting a Skilling Queenslanders for Work project.

Community-based not-for-profit organisations, local councils, and school Parent and Friends or Parent and Citizens associations should check the eligibility requirements.

Applications for the next round of funding are now open and the closing date is 8 October 2020.
