Skilling Queenslanders for work

Ignite Your Opportunities

Our Skilling Queenslanders for Work, ''Ignite Your Opportunities'' Program is aimed to help people in the community gain valuable work skills and employment. At Apprentices and Trainees Queensland, we have welcomed trainees to complete a certificate I in Workplace Skills (Business) or Construction.

Each intake secures traineeships for up to 10 participants per program where they are placed with not-for-profit community organisations in Central Queensland. Not only is this partnership highly beneficial to trainees through diversity in training as well as networking opportunities for future employment, but it also aids community partners in return. Not-for-profits have welcomed hosting a trainee from ATQLD for 18 weeks, as it gives extra support to their organisation at no extra cost.

The Skilling Queenslanders for Work Initiative is proudly funded by the Queensland Government.

Since 2020, ATQLD has provided a total of 50 jobseekers employment through its Skilling Queenslanders for Work – Work Skills ‘Ignite Your Opportunities’ Program. Between 2020 – 2021 in the program’s first intake, 30 trainees were placed at not-for-profits. Initially, Business and Construction traineeships were offered in Gladstone and then additional Business traineeships in Biloela after. From the program’s success, the second round of funding was secured enabling further Business traineeships in Gladstone and Rockhampton.
