The Queensland Government is seeking expressions of interest from Queensland-based private sector service providers to provide free access to online non-formal training libraries, courses and materials.

Up to $4 million has been allocated to the small business online training package as part of the Queensland Government's economic recovery strategy: Unite and recover for Queensland jobs.

For many small businesses and employees, being able to access an online library of resources covering a broad array of topics could be the best first step for them recovering from the crisis and successfully transitioning into a post coronavirus (COVID-19) economy.

Consideration will be given to proposals that provide access to existing resources, products and services or to new services that specifically support employment and economic recovery.

The small business online training package is focused on supporting COVID-19 impacted Queensland small business owners and operators, and employees (where employees are people currently employed by small business; are underemployed in a small business; were stood down from a small business; or who are wanting to transition to work in a small business because of COVID-19).

Full details on submitting an expression of interest can be found in the small business online training – request for expressions of interest form (DOCX, 118KB).

Submissions close on Monday 6 July 2020 at 2pm.

Email corporate.procurement@desbt.qld.gov.au with all questions or requests for clarification related to this expression of interest.
