More trainees for Logan City Council in 2018

Posted: 18th Oct

Logan City Council will have an additional 25 trainees in 2018, thanks to the Queensland Government expanding its First Start traineeship program through Skilling Queenslanders for Work.

Current and past First Start trainees already work in a range of Council teams, studying qualifications in business, sports and recreation, and library and information services.

The additional 25 trainees will double Council’s intake for 2018, which means the organisation is able to offer 43 full-time and seven school-based traineeships.

Council’s focus for traineeships is on young school leavers, to maximise their opportunities to transition to sustainable employment. The organisation delivers a quality of training that makes them highly employable.

There continues to be a high demand for and interest in Council traineeships in the Logan community. Some of the most popular posts in recent months on and its Facebook page relate to traineeship opportunities.

The additional 25 traineeships are part of a $4.25m boost by the Queensland Government for the First Start program, which will fund 340 extra trainees at 64 local councils across Queensland in 2018. Logan City Council has received the highest number of additional trainees in that allocation.

To date $687,500 has been allocated through the program for Logan City Council to assist 55 trainees.

Applications for 2018 traineeships at Logan City Council close on 27 October 2017. For more information:
