The initiative works to provide unemployed Aboriginal participants with skills needed to gain employment and work experience in the resources Queensland industry.

ESQ’s Queensland Workforce Skilling Strategy project coordinator Lindy Taylor explains the program teaches “valuable teamwork skills, health and safety standards, problem solving methods, job hunting techniques and first aid certification on top of work placement in local industries.”
