$33.8m for state and region jobseekers

THE State Government has pledged another $33.8 million to help Bundaberg and Queensland jobseekers find work, in the latest round of funding from the Skilling Queenslanders for Work initiative.

Training and Skills Minister Yvette D'Ath said 5765 more places had been assigned to jobseekers across the state, with 175 new projects being funded.

"The Skilling Queenslanders for Work initiative is producing great results, with more than 13,633 Queenslanders taking part since the program was reinstated by the Palaszczuk Government,” Mrs D'Ath said.

"Employers should also remember, if your business recruits someone who completed a Skilling Queenslanders for Work project and employs them as an apprentice or trainee, you may be eligible for the $10,000 Work Start incentive.”
