Have you ever thought about testing your vocational skills overseas or are you a professional working in the VET sector and considering an international short-term professional development placement?
The QOF offers both a Scholarship and Bursary opportunity for Queensland residents to further their career overseas. Check out these funding programs to see how you can undertake a career experience of a lifetime and bring back an international perspective on your industry.
Applications for the 2017 QOF Scholarship Program are now open!
The QOF Scholarship Program assists high achieving 18-30 year old trainees, apprentices and vocational education and training graduates (Certificate III and above) to travel and work overseas in their chosen vocation for up to two years.
The scholarship funds travel related expenses and a settling in allowance and is worth up to $7,500. It is hoped this opportunity will enable recipients to broaden their professional horizons, gain valuable international work experience and improve their career prospects.
Ultimately, the program aims to benefit the wider Queensland community through the knowledge and skills that return to the State with the scholarship recipients.
It is the responsibility of the recipient to make all arrangements for travel and employment; the QOF Governors will mentor the recipients and can assist with introductions and industry advice.
The 2017 QOF Scholarship Program is generously supported by the Foundation’s industry partners and the Queensland Government. Click here for information about eligibility and selection.
