What is Skilling Queenslanders for Work?
Our program is funded by the Skilling Queenslanders for Work (SQW) initiative.
The Queensland Government has announced $320 million over 4 years, with $80 million each year ongoing, to continue the Skilling Queenslanders for Work initiative. The initiative will assist up to 15,000 disadvantaged Queenslanders each year to gain skills, qualifications and experience to enter and stay in the workforce.
Skilling Queenslanders for Work funds training and support for unemployed or underemployed people, with a focus on young people (including those in and transitioned from out-of-home care), Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander people, people with disability, mature-age jobseekers, women re-entering the workforce, veterans and ex-service personnel, and people from culturally and linguistically diverse backgrounds.
That means that community-based organisations like Kingston East Neighbourhood Group can deliver tailored support and assistance to participants to help them gain nationally recognised skills and qualifications. This includes a mix of career advice, job preparation skills, foundation skills and individual case management
Is there an age limit?
You must be over 18 to be eligible for study with us.
There is no upper age limit.
In 2022, we had students aged from 18 – 82.
It’s never too late to learn something new. You are welcome here.
What if I need extra study support?
We’re here for you. At KENG we provide wrap-around support to help you achieve your goals.
We understand that some of our students might need a bit of extra help to overcome barriers to study, or are worried about returning to study after a long break since school, being out of the workforce, or taking time off to care for kids or family etc.
Have a chat to us about your needs and we’ll do our very best to support you in your study.
