About Skilling Queenslanders for Work
For many unemployed and underemployed individuals, a lack of foundational skills, job readiness, and support significantly hinders their ability to attain sustainable and meaningful employment. Skilling Queenslanders for Work (SQW) is a suite of targeted skills and training programs that help Queensland jobseekers to enter and succeed in the workforce.
Funded by the Queensland Government, SSI delivers multiple SQW programs that equips participants with knowledge, skills, connections, and transitional support to unlock fulfilling career opportunities.
How we help
Community Foundational Skills – Townsville and Logan
Community Work Skills offers tailored assistance to people who need to improve their reading, writing, maths, or computer skills to equip them with the knowledge and confidence necessary to take on further education, training or enhance employment opportunities.
With a customised training plan and guidance from an SSI mentor, program participants are supported to develop foundation skills that help them meet their full potential.
Ready for Work – Logan
Ready for Work helps equip Queensland jobseekers with the practical skills and support needed to get job-ready and successfully find employment.
Over the course of 6-8 weeks, the program focuses on job hunting and preparing for employment, including resume preparation, job interview skills, job search advice, and understanding employer expectations. Additionally, participants are provided the opportunity to network with local businesses and employers.
Community Work Skills – Logan and Townsville
Community Work Skills assists jobseekers to gain nationally recognised qualifications and skills.
Participants are supported to undertake qualifications and training up to Certificate III that will build their skills and maximise their local job opportunities. The program also provides customised case management, career advice, and job preparation.
You may be eligible for Skilling Queenslanders for Work programs if you are a Queensland resident and are either:
- Ineligible for Australian Government employment services or assistance,
- Require additional support due to significant barriers to learning and employment, or

This Skilling Queenslanders for Work project is proudly funded by the Queensland Government.
