Graduate programs

To effectively service the needs of the community, the public sector must continue to attract and retain skilled workers. Graduate programs can bring educated, energetic employees into agencies to help build capacity, retain knowledge and address diversity needs.

The Public Sector Commission’s Graduate development program (GDP) is designed for aspiring leaders who have recently completed tertiary studies and commenced employment in the public sector. GDP harnesses a whole-of-government perspective, encouraging participants to consider the political, legislative and policy environments in which government employees work. The program complements induction and graduate programs delivered within agencies.

For more information see the Graduate development program page.
