About SkillPASS

What is SkillPASS?

SkillPASS is an industry competency management system. SkillPASS enables workers to provide proof of competency to comply with company, project and regulatory requirements with the aim to minimize the risk of untrained personnel carrying out any work.

  • Manage workers individual records and skills sets, training and competencies.
  • Minimizes the need for staff to carry large amounts of cards and paper based documentation to worksites.
  • Track expiring competencies.

Operating since 2011, the Queensland Workforce Skilling Strategy (QWSS) has provided a framework for industry and communities to work together and provide solutions to maximise the potential for long-term unemployed, underemployed, Indigenous people, migrants and women to gain employment in the energy industries, its supply chain or locally. The focus has been on entry level jobs and enabling access to career path opportunities.

Energy Skills Queensland sources funding from the Federal and State Governments to conduct the QWSS. Assistance from industry partners provides additional support for specific programs.

Since January 2011, Energy Skills Queensland has seen a 55.5% success rate in QWSS participants gaining employment in the energy industry. The successful outcomes have been as a result of Energy Skills Queensland staff working on the ground to develop working relationships with Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander Communities (including Traditional Owner Groups), community partners, government agencies and Industry to ensure the individual participants are well supported to gain and retain employment.
