Provides training to people who are under-utilised or under-employed in the labour market.

First Start is one of eight programs that make up the Skilling Queenslanders for Work initiative. The program aims to provide young people and disadvantaged job seekers with opportunities to gain a nationally recognised qualification and 12 months paid employment by undertaking a subsidised traineeship with a local council or a community-based
organisation (CBO).

Funding under First Start is specifically targeted at new employees and will provide eligible organisations with a significant subsidy to boost their traineeship commencements above their normal workforce levels.
