ABOUT VET 4 T&L


This program was established in  2014 and is funded by the Department Employment, Small Business and Training to support ongoing reform and operations of the vocational education and training system relating to the contestable skills market in Queensland. VET4T&L is an industry engagement program covering all sectors of industry – road transport, passenger transport, logistics, rail, aviation and maritime.


The project aims to raise awareness about vocational education and training opportunities available to industry. VET4T&L is also committed to providing feedback to the Queensland government about current and future skilling priorities as identified by industry. To do this, the project uses a number of tools to engage with industry, from direct phonecalls and meetings to surveys and online feedback forums.

The last delivery phase of the project ran from October 2017 and was completed in June 2018. During these nine months, we achieved a total engagement of 111,541 across all sectors.

Activities are currently in planning for the next delivery phase which will run until March 2019. This will include more events and face-to-face meetings with industry in regional areas, to make sure we are representing the views of industry across our state – so watch this space!
