ENERGY Skills Queensland has announced the expansion of the Gladstone Workforce Skilling Strategy, with a new Bundaberg-based version of the program.

The Gladstone Workforce Skilling Strategy has been used as a blueprint for the implementation of ESQ's new skilling programs in Bundaberg, as it was hugely successful in helping jobseekers gain sustainable long-term employment in the Gladstone region.

Energy Skills Queensland program co-ordinator Karen Bellert said yesterday the Gladstone Workforce Skilling Strategy had revolutionised the way jobseekers were trained to ensure they were connected to the employment opportunities in the region.

The Queensland Workforce Skilling Strategy is funded by the government.
