​​​​​​​​​​​​Jobs Queensland


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.

The 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.

Tourism W​​orkforce Plan

Queensland's tourism industry needs, among other things, ready access to appropriately skilled workers and an adequate supply of labour.

Jobs Queensland will be launching a Tourism Workforce Plan and are inviting stakeholders from the tourism industry to provide input to inform workforce planning initiatives. It is important that as a representative of the tourism industry you have your say to ensure the Tourism Workforce Plan is relevant for your local needs and aspirations.​

To do this Jobs Queensland is hosting a number of regional workshops for industry, regions, and community to provide feedback on the Tourism Workforce Plan. If you would like to attend one of the workshops listed below please contact tourism@jobsqueensland.qld.gov.au.
