On 9 March 2023, the Queensland Care Consortium (QCC) was officially launched.
The QCC is a partnership between Jobs Queensland, CheckUP Australia, Queensland Council of Social Service (QCOSS), Community Services Industry Alliance (CSIA) and The Services Union to support the development of the Health and Community Services sectors workforce.
The formation of the QCC is part of Jobs Queensland’s Health and Community Services Sectors Workforce Development project, a multi-year commitment to plan, develop and deliver practical workforce solutions driven by industry, for industry.
It is also in support of the Good people. Good jobs: Queensland Workforce Strategy 2022-2032 – the first whole-of-government workforce strategy delivered by the Queensland Government. The strategy is a 10-year plan to provide the strategic foundation for government to work with industry, business, community and government stakeholders to develop a strong and skilled workforce.
We would like to give a special thanks to the Honourable Di Farmer MP, Minister for Employment and Small Business and Minister for Training and Skills Development, for attending the launch event and opening official proceedings.
