The QOF Global Connections Bursary aims to assist early and mid career VET trainers and assessors (VET graduates) presently employed in Queensland to undertake short-term training, professional development and knowledge exchange opportunities abroad.
Funding of up to $2,000 is available to support attendance at courses, workshops, conferences, work shadowing and other development activities that will contribute to the work and training outcomes of Queensland VET students and apprentices.
These bursaries will enable more skilled Queenslanders to engage with new technologies, industry practice and ideas from around the world. Bursary recipients are required to share their experiences with the VET industry upon their return to Queensland. Click here for information about eligibility and selection.
