Regional workforce transition support program

A key initiative to help regional communities

About the Regional Workforce Transition Support Program (RWTSP)

The Regional Workforce Transition Support Program is a key initiative to help our regional communities impacted by drought, floods, bushfires and COVID-19 to diversify and build employability skills to meet the needs of industry in a post-COVID economy. The RWTSP is a project funded through the Workforce Transition Support Program (WTSP) and delivered by TAFE Queensland in partnership with The Department of Employment, Small Business and Training (DESBT), Queensland Government.

As part of the Future Skills Fund, the RWTSP will assist employers and workers to transition local workforce skills to take advantage of new or emerging industries during Queensland’s economic recovery and beyond. There is a focus on activity within regional centres facing closure of major industries or where emerging new industries are seeking local skilled labour. RWTSP will support new and existing staff to be upskilled to meet local workforce demands, enabling workers and other cohorts in the target region, to retain or gain employment and contribute to the economic prosperity of their community.

How TAFE Queensland can help?

TAFE Queensland has designed a range of short courses to enable regional communities impacted by drought, floods, bushfires and COVID-19 to upskill, engage with local community and increase opportunities.
