Graduate development program

The Public Sector Commission has established the Graduate development program to support new and aspiring leaders—with a recent tertiary qualification—in the Western Australia public sector. The program provides a whole-of-sector perspective on the political, legislative and community focused environment in which all public sector employees must operate in on a daily basis.

The program embraces a blended learning approach, combining elements of formal training, group/peer learning, and on the job application of new knowledge with a practical approach. 

The curriculum complements, graduate, induction and development programs delivered by agencies and would suit graduates recently employed in the public sector.

The workshops are a mix of full and half-day sessions conducted by either external facilitators or senior staff across the sector. The entire program is spread across over a 10 month period.

Referrals to the program for potential participants for this year’s intake is now closed.

Referrals for the 2018 intake will open in late 2017.
