Registered Trade Skills Pathway
The Registered Trade Skills Pathway program is piloting a new pathway into trade qualifications which complements mainstream apprenticeships. The program is aimed at assisting non-qualified workers in a number of industries to build on their existing skills, knowledge and experience to gain a trade qualification.
Construction pilot program
Managed by Construction Skills Queensland, the Construction pilot program is firmly centred on work-based skill formation and will use skills assessment and gap training to help existing workers gain a trade qualification. The program will use key apprenticeship elements, the training plan and training record, to log participant progress and record on-the-job competencies.
For further details, please read the Registered Trade Skills Pathway - Construction pilot program fact sheet (PDF, 89KB).

Hospitality pilot program
Many workers with cooking industry experience have lots of the necessary skills to perform on the job, but do not hold a formal qualification to recognise these skills. This pilot will help those people turn their skills and experience into a commercial cookery trade qualification.
Managed by the Queensland Tourism Industry Council, the hospitality pilot program will be for 50 participants in Certificate III in Commercial Cookery. Participation is open for applications aged 21 years or over, who due to the nature of their work arrangements would not usually be able to participate in a mainstream apprenticeship pathway, such as, seasonal employees and causal workers within the hospitality industry. Persons who are eligible under the traditional apprenticeship system will not be eligible for this program.
