The Regional Jobs Committees are part of our plan to work with all stakeholders to create more jobs, improve training pathways and raise investment in our businesses and workforces across the state.

The committees are one of the key actions of the Skills for Queensland - Great training for quality jobs strategy which includes a strong focus on local leadership of skills and workforce challenges.

Six committees will be established across the state in the following locations:

  • Townsville
  • Mackay
  • Fraser Coast
  • Springfield
  • Toowoomba
  • Redlands.

The committees will drive job growth in their regions and plan for the future by:

  • developing strategies that address local workforce and skills issues
  • identifying new skills opportunities
  • ensuring the local workforce has the skills needed to fill future jobs.

The committees will bring together local business, government, community leaders, training providers, industry representatives, high schools and unions to develop regional job and training plans.

Additional Regional Jobs Committees will be formed across the state to add further input into biannual regional skills and jobs summits.
