Member for Murrumba Steven Miles congratulated the finalists on reaching this significant achievement.

“These apprentices and trainees, students, teachers, employers, and training and community organisations have used training to build their careers, grow their businesses and strengthen their communities,” Mr Miles said.

“Finalists from North Coast region will join more than 220 finalists from across seven regions who will vie for a place at the state final of the Queensland Training Awards in Brisbane on 14 September,” Mr Ryan said.

“I congratulate all of them for becoming a finalist in these prestigious awards, and for their dedication to training.”

Member for Maryborough Bruce Saunders said the Palaszczuk Government is committed to supporting training and skills development for all Queenslanders.

“The Queensland Training Awards focuses the spotlight on the excellence that exists in the state’s training sector and supports our commitment to fostering skilled workforces,” Mr Saunders said.

Minister for Training and Skills Development Shannon Fentiman said being selected as a regional finalist recognises their outstanding contribution to the state’s growth and economy and they should be proud of their achievements so far.
