Queensland Training Assets Management Authority
On 14 August 2015, the Queensland Training Assets Management Authority (QTAMA) was abolished, following the commencement of legislation that was passed by the Queensland Parliament in July 2015 to dissolve QTAMA and return control of the state's training assets to the Department of Employment, Small Business and Training.
The abolishment of QTAMA is a critical step in implementing Rescuing TAFE, a key Queensland Government election commitment to invest $34 million over 3 years to support TAFE Queensland as the premium vocational education and training (VET) provider in the state.
The Queensland Government is developing a 10 year plan for the future of the state's training facilities. Through consultation during April to June 2016, the department gathered a range of stakeholder views about the key issues influencing training and skills, and how the state can use these facilities to support training and skilling outcomes. Read about the development of the Plan.
Leasing of training facilities to interested parties is managed by the department, with TAFE Queensland to receive priority access to all facilities. To find out more about leasing of training facilities, read the frequently asked questions for department contact details.
