The Queensland Government has established Jobs Queensland, as an independent statutory entity providing strategic industry advice to government on skills demand and future workforce planning.
Jobs Queensland Act 2015 (PDF, 380KB) outlines the organisation's legislated functions and board structure.
Jobs Queensland is part of the government's commitment to make the vocational education and training (VET) sector in Queensland the strongest and most productive in the nation.
It will play a key role to foster a skilled and productive workforce for Queensland's changing economy and support Queenslanders into the jobs of the future.
Jobs Queensland will provide skills analysis of industry sectors across the state to advise government on current and future skills needs, undertake workforce planning activities and provide advice to government on the apprenticeship and traineeship system.
Jobs Queensland is a critical step in ensuring industry has an independent voice to help prioritise government's investment in VET to underpin effective skills development and sustainable economic growth.
