The Toowoomba Regional Skills Investment (RSIS) project is an initiative between Toowoomba Regional Council and the Department of Employment, Small Business and Training, to identify current and emerging jobs, and to ensure there is a supply of skilled local people to meet this demand.

The Toowoomba RSIS project will set up an RSIS Network to provide free information and assistance to businesses about training and skills funding and opportunities. Additionally, it will set up Industry Advisory Groups to develop training and funding solutions.

The Toowoomba Regional Council is currently seeking Expressions of Interest to join an Industry Advisory Group which will be the driving force behind the Toowoomba RSIS project.

The Industry Advisory Groups will meet quarterly to:

  • Recommend industry led solutions to address local training issues and skills shortages
  • Provide recommendations to customise Queensland Government trained funding
  • Promote local training programs or initiatives which address local industry training needs

Members of the Industry Advisory Committee must operate and employ workers in the Toowoomba Local Government area. Members should be actively involved in the development of their industry and staff and have a reasonable understanding of the skills required to adapt to industry changes.

Businesses are being sought from the following Transport and Logistics industries:

  • Air Freight
  • Rail Freight
  • Road Freight
  • Bulk Transport
  • Perishable Freight
  • Warehousing / Distribution
  • Warehousing / Distribution – Bulk Goods
  • Warehousing / Distribution – Perishable Freight
