The Get Set for Work program was one of many initiatives that will cease to exist after the Newman Government cut funding to the Skilling Queenslanders for Work scheme.
Currently it is set to expire at the end of the year, but youth advocates say the State Government may not be able to choose to cut the funding.
The Coalition of Community Boards (CCB) has put together research which it says shows the State Government has a responsibility to provide young people with vocational training programs.
Under the Vocational Education, Training and Employment Act 2000 the government has a duty to "ensure (a) employment skills development programs are developed to meet the diverse needs of young people in the compulsory participation phase; and (b) the programs are accessible by young people in the compulsory participation phase".
A member of CCB and Treasurer of the Deception Bay Community Youth Program Trish Ferrier says by cutting the Get Set for Work Program, which specifically targets young people, the government is in breach of its statutory responsibilities as set out in the Act.
She spoke with Brisbane Line Reporter Steven Riggall about the issue.
