Training and skills

​​The Queensland Government provides subsidised training opportunities and initiatives to assist eligible Queenslanders at different stages of their working life to access vocational education and training and complete formal qualifications.

Have your say on VET reform

The Australian Government Department of Education and Training has released discussion papers on unduly short courses and training product reform.

The reforms will focus on ensuring students and employers receive high quality training that is responsive to the needs of industry and translates into employment opportunities for individuals.

The Australian Government is consulting on two aspects of the system:

  • unduly short courses
  • training products.

All VET stakeholders are encouraged to consider the recently released discussion papers and have a say on the reform.

Submissions are open until 9 March 2018.
