The QTIC Tourism and Hospitality Mature Aged Program aims to promote inclusiveness in the workforce, enabling people to stay connected and contribute socially and economically. The program aligns to the civic participation and employment goal of the Queensland Governments, Advancing Queensland: an age-friendly community grants program.

The project will provide opportunities for seniors aged 55 years and over to participate in employment, training, lifelong learning and volunteering opportunities. Furthermore, the program also supports the Queensland Government's Advancing Queensland: an age-friendly community grants program, respect and social inclusion goal, ensuring that employees are hired based on skills with all backgrounds valued, and appreciated for the skills and knowledge they can offer.

The integration of seniors in the workforce promotes intergenerational problem solving and an increase in the connection between older and younger staff members. Champion employers will demonstrate the value of having mature people in the workforce and the value of learning from one another.

QTIC will utilise its strong relationships with its member Registered Training Organisations including our corporate partner TAFE Queensland to promote and develop skills training as required.
