Skilling Queenslanders for Work

Community Work Skills is one of seven programs that form part of the Queensland Government’s Skilling Queenslanders for Work initiative.

Through a suite of targeted skills and training programs, Skilling Queenslanders for work aims to improve the skills, employment opportunities and social inclusion of Queenslanders.

Community Work Skills offers tailored assistance and integrated learner support to job seekers while they undertake a nationally recognised qualification, up to Certificate III level.

Who does the program support?

Community Work Skills primarily targets Queensland residents who either:

  • Are ineligible for Australian Government employment services or assistance, or
  • Require complementary services because they have significant barriers to learning and employment, or
  • Have accessed Australian Government services for more than six months and remain unemployed.

Community Gro’s Skilling Queenslanders for work program – Servicing Community, involves;

  • Nationally recognised Certificate III qualification in Community Services.

Participants have access to;

  • Tailored learning support
  • Employability skills
  • Opportunities to increase skills
  • Employment assistance
  • Resume preparation and writing
  • Job interview skills
  • Job search advice, including where to look for work, how to apply for work, and understanding employer expectations
  • Networking opportunities with local businesses and employers to share their experiences and industry knowledge
  • Access to support services if needed.

All training is delivered at The Upper Ross Community Centre in a relaxed supportive environment.
