The Queensland Government places a high priority on anticipating future skills needs and workforce planning and development. The Training in Emerging and Innovative Industries Fund provides assistance to industries impacted by digital disruption by supporting a transition and adoption of new practices by existing workers.
The principal aims of the Training in Emerging and Innovative Industries Fund are to:
- support the current workforce development needs of enterprises and emerging innovative industries
- minimise current and potential skills shortages
- address emerging skill needs in the economy or in industries
- create an environment where innovation, flexibility and industry focus are paramount.
The Training in Emerging and Innovative Industries Fund was a one-off funding opportunity for industries impacted by digital disruption. Expression of interest applications closed March 2018 and there are no further opportunities for funding through this program.
