The success of the Workforce Council comes down to connecting with people. We work across Queensland’s Health and Community Services Industry to empower the workforce and energise its potential. We support its sustainable development, at every level, in all occupations and in every kind of workplace. We engage with individuals and service providers, organisations and government, leaders and industry participants so that people are connected, developed and supported. We have the networks to make sure the Health and Community Services Industry has a seat at the table where important decisions are made.

Our own people are experts in research, analysis and forecasting, program design, skills development, education, mentoring, coaching and training. It is our ability to personalise and tailor workforce planning and development solutions that helps us to help you work well.

We work with workforce and industry champions to support workforce planning and development programs. We deliver programs through our own teams and work closely with preferred industry partners. We support our clients, so that their planning and strategy development is responsive, evidence-based and meets real needs.

By ensuring the participation of all, we build capacity and support sustainability.

We are a trusted partner who energises all stakeholders in the industry through innovation, expertise and integrity to be connected and work well together.
