New Skilling Queenslanders for Work projects funded for Logan

Posted: 29th May

Logan jobseekers will have the chance to gain skills and help their community recover from the recent floods, through new Skilling Queenslanders for Work projects announced by the Queensland Government this week.

Three of the 10 projects are in Logan, as part of the an extra $10 million allocated for the Skilling Queenslanders for Work Community Recovery package.

Funding for Logan includes $416,000 to help train 16 people in Logan and Scenic Rim council areas while they undertake work in public areas, parks and gardens.

In addition, $523,300 has also been allocated to help 30 Logan trainees and jobseekers from culturally and linguistically diverse backgrounds to be trained in conservation and land management.

Another $480,000 will go to TAFE to allow 24 trainees in Logan undertake recovery and replanting work on rural properties in the Chambers Flat area affected by flooding.

The Queensland Government says the latest figures show Skilling Queenslanders for Work is delivering jobs for nearly two thirds of graduates.
