Our focus is two-fold—working to support you, our government leaders, to ensure your employees maintain a contemporary skillet and developing training and skills development programs that build skills in communities and industries. We understand the sometimes complex and varied requirements of government. Our solutions bring together the best training content, technology and delivery methods to suit your department or council.
TAFE Queensland has a range of solutions available to suit you. Our work is completely scalable, whether you're looking for a one-off training program or a fully customised enterprise solution.
Recognition of prior learning (RPL) is perfect for governments that have experienced employees who don’t hold a qualification. We work with individuals to recognise their skills, and complete a gap training plan. RPL can be useful in more general business, government policy qualifications and more specialised areas like conservation, horticulture, cleaning operations, library services and more.
We offer a range of quality accredited training options. We are registered to deliver over 500 qualifications, which means we can help you develop skills in almost every industry. We also offer qualifications to support government administration including the Diploma of Government (PSP50116).
We offer over 120 different apprenticeships and different 100 traineeships. Apprentices and trainees will work towards the completion of a nationally recognised qualification while learning valuable skills at work and under the guidance of our experienced and specialist teachers. Choose TAFE Queensland as your supervising registered training organisation.
Micro-credentials are short, highly-targeted courses designed to help employees improve specific skills. We can create micro-credentials specific to your needs, or provide access to our existing suite including cultural competence, digital literacy and research. Micro-credentials are a cost-effective way of providing professional development to your staff to upskill them and keep them current.
Often the training programs we create for government clients are fully customised. They can range from smaller skills interventions, like induction programs, to complex and contextualised solutions like our work with the 2018 Gold Coast Commonwealth Games. No matter the scale you’re after, we can develop a high quality program that will give you results.
Workforce development planning ensures you have the right people in the right place at the right time. As part of our process we work with you to create a plan that:
As Queensland’s premier public provider of vocational education and training we work with a range of government clients. Regardless of whether you are running a full invitation to offer or request for quote process or a small scale direct buy, or choosing a registered training organisation for your apprentices and trainees, we would love to hear from you.
