Industry Partnerships Strategy
The Industry Partnerships Strategy is a key initiative under the Queensland Government’s five-year training reform action plan Great skills Real opportunities. The strategy provides Queensland industry with an opportunity to partner with government to meet the priority skill and workforce needs of employers. It provides employers with an opportunity to influence public investment in skills, including how, where and when training is delivered.
The strategy provides funding up to a maximum of $400,000 per project, with the amount dependent on the nature of the training, assistance to be provided, and the number of participants targeted by the project. There is an expectation of 50:50 financial co- contribution from the participating partners towards the cost of support strategies funded through the project.

Poly Welding Accredited Short Course!
OIT now offer an exciting opportunity to learn a highly in demand skill for the mining, gas and agricultural industries with a qualification in poly welding. Currently in Australia and overseas there is a huge need for accredited tradesmen for the installation of plastic pipeline systems.
This program will provide you with a strong understanding of polyethylene pipe, products and fittings relevant to Butt’ and Electrofusion’ welding requirements. You will be able to carry out both welding techniques to industry standards while receiving exposure to industry resources and field experts.
You will cover two units of competency in this accredited short course which can lead to certification as a polyethylene pipe welder in manufacturing plants, mining industry, gas and water industry.
Businesses urged to make a Queensland Apprenticeship Pledge!
The State Government has launched the Queensland Apprenticeship Pledge, an exciting new initiative that aims to drive the creation of additional apprenticeship opportunities. Under the Queensland Apprenticeship Pledge, the government has asked industry to commit to providing additional apprenticeship opportunities to further develop a strong skills base for the state’s economy.
In return eligible employers who sign up to the program will be paid an incentive of up to $6000 for each additional apprentice they take on above their benchmark. The Queensland Apprenticeship Pledge supports the Queensland Government’s $86 million commitment to create 10,000 additional apprenticeships over six years.
It also builds on the success of two other initiatives implemented under the Queensland Government’s Great skills Real opportunities training reform action plan – the School to Trade Pathway Incentive program and the Group Training Additional Apprentice Bonus.
For more information or to make a pledge to employ additional apprentices please go to http://training.qld.gov.au/pledge.
Now that’s the ticket!
James Barry a boilermaker from Major Rigging’s has received his AS1796 Welding Ticket 8G and 8F from Outsource Institute of Technology (OIT). The welding ticket theory and practical were incorporated into his Cert IV in Engineering training program which enabled James to study at his own pace whilst gaining access to a welding instructor to learn the practical advanced welding skills. Congratulations James!!
OIT can also incorporate the AS1796 Ticket 10 Welding Supervisors program into the Cert IV in Engineering qualification. James was already qualified as a Boilermaker but chose to enrol into the Cert IV in Engineering to advance his level of specialist welding skills – James is now keen to study the Ticket 10 Welding Supervisors. OIT look forward to assisting James to achieve his learning goals!
