Delivery of the Certificate IV in Training and Assessment (TAE40116) on Thursday Island and in Northern Peninsula Area is a project funded through the Regional Skills Adjustment Strategy (RSAS). RSAS is a two-year initiative targeting specific regions of Queensland facing economic uncertainty by supporting workers that are at risk of being displaced from traditional industries, or retrenched as a result of significant company closures. RSAS also provides proactive support to employers in target sectors to build workforce resilience and address skills or labour shortages. RSAS supports those individuals to gain the foundation, employability and technical skills needed to transition to the jobs of the future.Learn more
