"It's going to be a tough job in terms of what she's inheriting if she was elected Premier," the Prime Minister said.

"The key point about Deb's campaign is she has a plan to get Queenslanders get working again."

The appearance came after both major parties threw similar amounts at job-related pledges, with Labor making a pitch for school trade training, and the LNP targeting renovation work in cyclone-prone areas.

At an oil refinery in Gladstone, Ms Palaszczuk promised a re-elected Labor government would spend $45 million to build training facilities in 26 schools across the state to connect them to local "growth industries" such as hydrogen and aquaculture.

"It means jobs for regional Queensland," she said.

"For example, we will partner with the Gladstone State High School … they will be given funding so they can set up hydrogen facilities so they can be ready when hydrogen becomes a reality," she said.

When pressed on whether she would set a target, she said the state was in the midst of a pandemic and her party was focused on jobs and families, as well as providing young people with skills.

Ms Palaszczuk also said last week's federal Budget was "good", but more funding for child care should be a "no-brainer".

"When talking about young people and women being the two significant areas where we have to concentrate on getting [people] back to work, child care is fundamental," she said.

Meanwhile, Ms Frecklington spent the morning in Mackay, announcing there would be a $50 million trades and renovation program for households north of Bundaberg under an LNP government.

Ms Frecklington said under the plan, households would be able to apply for up to $15,000 for local tradespeople to prepare their homes for cyclone season.

She said works such as upgrades to roofs, garage doors and shutters would reduce insurance premiums and generate about 450 jobs.

"This announcement is all about making people's homes more resilient, about reducing their insurance premiums and getting tradies into work," Ms Frecklington said.
