Funding announcements

30 June 2023: outcome of the 2023–24 S2WT funding round has been released. View the funded projects list (PDF, 578KB).

The School to Work Transitions (S2WT) program will deliver $3 million over 3 years to support school students who are at risk of not transitioning successfully from school to further education, training or employment, by providing tailored solutions to improve post-school outcomes.

The S2WT program has been implemented as part of the school-to-work transitions focus area of the Good people. Good jobs: Queensland Workforce Strategy 2022–2032.

Funded organisations will support priority school student groups through:

  • creating strong and effective school-industry partnerships across Queensland
  • connecting schools, students and employers to maximise local employment opportunities and create youth-friendly workplaces
  • enabling tailored assistance and support approaches to be provided to under-represented student groups.

The priority school student groups are:

  • school-based apprentices and trainees
  • Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander students
  • students from schools with an Index of Community Socio-educational Advantage (ICSEA) below 900
  • rural and remote students
  • under-represented groups in the workforce
  • place-based strategies in areas with high youth unemployment and/or significant workforce strategies that could be filled by school leavers.
