QCOSS Workshops and Webinars:

In preparation for the second funding round, DESBT is again partnering with QCOSS to deliver workshops and webinars across the state to help community-based organisations respond effectively to funding applications for the Skilling Queenslanders for Work initiative. These workshops will be presented in 11 locations throughout Queensland.

Discover how to develop a proposal that gives you the best chance of success in a competitive funding environment by attending a SQW workshop.

QCOSS workshops and webinars will cover: 

  • What the Department is looking for in funding responses
  • Developing a methodology for writing tenders
  • How to address the assessment criteria
  • What sort of evidence can you use and how to build it up
  • Establishing value for money
  • How to make your response stand out
  • Key pitfalls in writing funding applications
  • Checklist and resources

While the workshops and webinars will focus on the Skilling Queenslanders for Work initiative, the tips learned will help you with other funding proposals.

After the workshop, stay on for QCOSS Connect, a free one-hour event where you will hear what QCOSS has been up to, learn about the issues that are currently affecting communities and the community service sector in Queensland, and have an opportunity to provide your feedback.
