Do you know young people aged 15-21 who are, or have been living in care, and are thinking about vocational education and training or job options, but not sure where to start? The Department of Education and Training’s What’s Next Out-of-Home Care fund can help these young people take the next step, including financial help with enrolment fees and other training costs like uniforms, textbooks and occupational licenses such as a Blue Card or the work safety White Card. You can help the young people register by sending an email to and include the young person’s name, age, postcode and contact number AND a statement confirming the young person’s eligibility: eg. I can confirm that XXX is currently/has been in out-of-home care in Queensland. The young person will then be contacted by a What’s Next Pathways Officer to help them take the next step. This is a great opportunity, so it’s really important that young people register for this funding now. Find out more at the website or view the flyer.
