Skilling Queenslanders for Work Alert – revised guidelines for First Start (Community) traineeships

The Skilling Queenslanders for Work (SQW) Alert First Start (Community) traineeships have had revised guidelines issued.

The department has received a number of enquiries regarding sub-contracting arrangements and Queensland Government subsidies available in addition to First Start funding.

The First Start Guidelines for funding 2016-17 have now been updated to reflect the department’s position on sub-contracting and government funding, and a copy of the revised guidelines are attached for your information.

First Start funding will provide local community organisations with a significant subsidy to employ local jobseekers. Funding of $20,000 per trainee is available for not-for-profit community organisations under First Start, with funding specifically targeted at new employees.

To register your interest in applying for First Start funding please email the SQW team at sqwapps@det.qld.gov.au  An application form will then be sent to you for review and completion.

Note: To be eligible for this funding, trainees must be recruited and entered into a formal training contract for a qualification that is funded by DET by 30 June 2017.
