The Department of State Development aims to create more jobs, prioritise training for the unemployed and support vulnerable workers as the State’s economy changes and grows.
Employment Programs partner with industry and employers to fill jobs with work-ready jobseekers, to re-skill retrenched workers and to improve productivity.
Since 2004, these programs have assisted over 300,000 people.
With a range of projects and support services, the Department of State Development provides tailored programs for mature age, youth, Aboriginal people and people disadvantaged in the labour market through the delivery of training, skills development and employment projects.
