Jobseekers in the Murweh region are about to receive a boost to their employability as funding has been received for a Skilling Queenslanders for Work project.

Skilling Queenslanders for Work in an initiative of the Queensland Government and provides skills development, training and job opportunities to unemployed, disengaged or disadvantaged Queenslanders through a suite of targeted skills and training programs

This particular Skilling Queenslanders for Work program is a collaboration between Murweh Shire Council, Department of State Development and Golden West Apprenticeships, in consultation with Department of Employment and Training.

Funding has been received for six Work Skills Traineeships in Charleville and surrounding areas, which offers jobseekers paid employment for up to six months on public works, community and environmental projects while they work towards achieving a certificate qualification. 

The Murweh Work Skills Traineeship program will provide an opportunity for jobseekers to work on Council’s community projects while undertaking a traineeship in business or construction.  The trainees will gain valuable work experience and the ability to develop core skills in their traineeship area. The traineeships on offer include two business and four construction traineeships.

“This program seeks to improve employment prospects of Murweh residents by developing entry level employment skills through the work skills traineeships.  The program aims to develop and retain skills and people in our rural community through the development of job pathways, and employment participation” said Ms Johnson, CEO of Golden West Apprenticeships

Annie Liston, Mayor of Murweh Shire Council expressed her excitement regarding the opportunities the program offered. “The Murweh Shire is very excited to have this great opportunity available to employ and up-skill our residents” said Mrs Liston. 

Anyone who is interested in applying for the work skills traineeships should register online at www.goldenwest.org.au

The Skilling Queenslanders for Work project is proudly funded and supported by the Queensland Government.
