Training in aged care for jobless
TRAINING in aged care or community services will assist 150 unemployed people from Central Queensland to become qualified for jobs.
Parliamentary secretary for employment and economic development Jan Jarratt said Community Solutions would receive $487,450 in government funding to deliver training to Central Queensland.
Community Solutions will recruit groups from Rockhampton, Mackay, Maryborough and Gladstone to deliver training to 30 participants at a time.
Participants will have the opportunity to complete qualifications in aged care or community services.
Community Solutions Wide Bay Services manager Melinda Everett said the aged care and community services industry had been chosen because employers were dealing with a skills shortage.
