Employment, Skills and Training

Finding meaningful work is a critical factor in settlement success.  Multicultural Australia offers a number of programs and support services to enable new Queenslanders to find and thrive in their chosen career. These programs include opportunities for new arrivals to learn vocational skills and complete placements in Queensland business through Work & Welcome, as well as our ParentsNext program which focuses on supporting the parents of young children to enter, or return to, suitable employment.

All these strategies focus on helping to strengthen Queensland and its economy by providing opportunities for new arrivals to contribute their time and skills. By investing in newcomers, we invest in Australia.



Acknowledgement of country
We acknowledge the traditional custodians of all the lands on which we meet, work and live and recognise that this land has always been and always will be Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander land.


Multicultural Australia respects and values Australia’s First Nation peoples’ enormous resilience, courage, determination and often unrecognized contributions to this country’s social and economic development. We walk together in solidarity in the shared pain of the past and with shared hope for the future.
