Connecting people, business and community to deliver a skilled workforce

At Training Queensland’s FNQ regional office our small group of professional staff act at a local level to develop your workforce and support participation in Vocational Education and Training (VET).

Develop your workforce and grow job skills using these tools 

Our aim at FNQ Training is to ensure you have all the tools you need to plan for and develop your workforce skills so your business can grow and mature.

You can start TAFE before you finish school 

Tropical North Queensland (TNQ) TAFE has a long history of providing Vocational Education Training in North Queensland. The experienced industry teachers work closely with the Department of Education, Training and Employment and the schools in our region to provide students with options to help them achieve their training and career goals.

There is a wide variety of funding sources available to prospective trainees and apprentices, employers, schools and local communities.
