The Department of Employment, Small Business and Training (DESBT) is committed to ensuring Queenslanders have the education, training and support they need to contribute to the economic and social development of Queensland.

We invest in training opportunities, including subsidised training and incentives, to help skill Queenslanders and grow workforces in a way that supports the state's employment, skills and economic priorities.

Through the Training division, the department is dedicated to achieving quality and supporting a world-class vocational education and training (VET) system in Queensland.

Apprenticeships and traineeships

The department has regulatory responsibilities in relation to apprenticeships and traineeships in Queensland.

As legislated in Queensland's Further Education and Training Act 2014, our role includes oversight of apprenticeship and traineeship training contracts, completion certificates and other services, as well as recognition of group training organisations and principal employer organisations.

Our Apprenticeships Info service is a 'one-stop shop' for free advice, referrals and support on apprenticeships and traineeships in Queensland.
