Skills Queensland is an industry-led statutory body, established to strengthen Queensland's economic base by providing a skilled workforce that meets the current and future needs of industry and the community.
Skills Queensland builds on the Queensland Government's commitment to work in partnership with industry, training providers, unions, universities and the community to create one of the most flexible, modern and innovative training systems in Australia.
Skills Queensland is led by a Board comprised of industry leaders. The Board is supported by a Chief Executive Officer and staff. Skills Queensland is responsible to the Minister for Education, Training and Employment.

On 20 December 2010 the Bill was proclaimed and Skills Queensland was formally established under the Education and Training Legislation (Skills Queensland) Amendment Act 2010.
