Community Foundation Skills

What is Community Foundation Skills?

PCYC Queensland offer the Community Foundation Skills program as part of Queensland Government’s Skilling Queenslanders for Work initiative. The program provides personalised training for people who have difficulty with low level language, literacy, numeracy and digital (LLND) skills.

The program works with young people, developing foundation skills to pursue career aspirations and support transitions to further training, employment or improved job roles. In most cases we achieve this through 3 days per week face-to-face engagement with the young people. Foundation skills can include healthy lifestyle habits, computer skills and community work.
