The purpose of the Transport and Logistics Workforce Advisory Group (TLWAG) is to support the government and industry in identifying current and future workforce capability challenges. The group also provides advice through Queensland Transport to the Department of Education Training and the Arts on industry priorities for government investment in education and training.
