Resources: Skilling Queenslanders for Work and applying for funding

QCOSS partners 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 onĀ 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.

The first SQW funding round for 2021-22 is open now and will close 5:00pm on Thursday, 19 August 2021. To assist you with your application, downloadable and watchable resources are available now on the QCOSS website – including webinar recordings, presentation slides, and a ‘grant on a page’. Access the resources.
