The Queensland Government is committed to a strong and vibrant TAFE system.
We want a TAFE system that delivers the skills industry needs, and maximises the employability of Queenslanders. As we emerge from the economic slowdown associated with the Global Financial Crisis, it is vital that we have a skilled workforce to help support renewed growth in Queensland.
The department will initiate a range of actions, designed to position TAFE in the longer term, as a system which can ensure Queensland's industry sectors have access to a range of skills from a well trained workforce. These actions will build on the culture of a partnership in skills development between government, industry and individuals.To improve communication between TAFE and industry, the department has been working towards establishing a TAFE single point of contact for large employers and industry associations so that opportunities can be better pursued.
