Digital skills and trade readiness

Workshops, webinars and mentoring programs focusing on Digital Skills and Trade Readiness are on offer throughout the state under the Tourism Industry Business Capability Development Program (Business Capability Program).

All tourism businesses are encouraged to participate – particularly small to medium sized enterprises and young businesses that have growth ambitions. Businesses do not need to be a member of a peak body or Regional Tourism Organisation (RTO) to participate.

The $3 million Business Capability Program is being delivered throughout Queensland in conjunction with RTOs and other industry stakeholders. It will be delivered over 3 years until 30 June 2021 by the Queensland Tourism Industry Council (QTIC).
