Mining partnership wins industry accolade – TAFE Queensland


The Queensland Future Skills (QFS) Partnership is delivering new courses, skill sets and micro-credentials directly into industry and secondary schools by TAFE Queensland and CQUniversity.

More than 100 Year 10 students from schools across the Isaac Region are involved in the training pathway specialising in new, digital and autonomous technologies.

TAFE Queensland, Executive Director, Robert Petherbridge said the partnership is helping to future proof Queensland mining workforces and Queensland regional communities.

“There is often much discussion about future workforces and through the QFS Partnership we are taking action now to deliver the skills into Queensland communities that will be needed in the next five, 10, 15 and 20 years.”

CQUniversity’s Deputy Vice-President, Vocational Education and Training, Peter Heilbuth said the delivery model of the partnership represented an exciting step forward when it comes to engaging with industry to develop and deliver future- focused skills training.
