QLD Government Intiatives
Skilling Queenslanders for Work
Skilling Queenslanders for Work helps eligible Queenslanders develop skills, gain qualifications and provide direct assistance to enter and stay in the workforce.
The initiative offers six programs that deliver training to improve skills and employment opportunities. The program focuses on supporting young people, Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander people, people with disability, mature-age job seekers and people from culturally and linguistically diverse backgrounds.
The programs are delivered across the state by community-based organisations, local councils, Parents and Citizens’ and Parents and Friends associations.
Subsidised training opportunities
The Queensland Government provides subsidised training opportunities to assist eligible Queenslanders at different stages of their working life to access vocational education and training and complete formal qualifications.
Queensland Skills Gateway
The Queensland Skills Gateway allows Queenslanders to search and browse vocational education and training information including courses available, training providers, government funding and career pathways.

Queensland Training Ombudsman
The Queensland Government is establishing a Training Ombudsman as part of its commitment to providing quality training and reinvigorating the VET sector in Queensland. To ensure we can start to assist Queenslanders we have appointed an interim Training Ombudsman.
