GOVERNMENT FUNDING

GOVERNMENT FUNDED PROGRAMS

Through the Department of Employment, Small Business and Training (DESBT) the state government aims to work with industry, registered training organisations (RTO’s), community organisations and communities to not only create more jobs but ensure skills are aligned to these jobs thus ensuring the skilling and upskilling of Queensland’s workforce. To achieve this, each year the department makes available funding to eligible organisations and individuals across the state.
