Jobs Queensland’s Workforce Planning Connect resources are set to be transformed into a short course available to all Queensland businesses through the University of the Sunshine Coast. 

Minister for Employment and Small Business and Minister for Training and Skills Development Di Farmer, who announced the micro-credential course on 17 February said the course was a valuable opportunity for all businesses across the state.  

“The skills from this course will help small businesses to find ways to work smarter as they recruit, and develop the workers they need now, and into the future,” Minister Farmer said. 

The free course will help Queensland business owners navigate their way through the workforce planning process. 

Jobs Queensland Board Chair, Donna Bonney said the partnership with the University of the Sunshine Coast was a great way to educate small business owners about the free tools Jobs Queensland has available. 

“Undertaking workforce planning can help businesses improve their workforce retention and productivity, and it can also identify their future skills needs so they can start working towards their longer-term goals now,” Ms Bonney said. 

“Through this partnership with University of the Sunshine Coast, our resources will be used to help even more businesses across the state.” 

The course will be made available to all from April and will allow those completing a Graduate Certificate in Business at the University of Sunshine Coast to claim subject credits.
