Public Sector Management (PSM) Program

Applications for 2018 are now open!

The Public Sector Management Program is a flexible and dynamic study option catering specifically for mid-level managers in the modern Australian public service. Offered to both public sector and non-government organisation staff, the program provides an engaging and relevant curriculum delivered through a unique blend of work-based learning, workshops and a virtual learning environment.

The program is delivered over 15 months and is focused around intensive mandatory workshops. Participants who successfully complete the program receive a Graduate Certificate in Business (Public Sector Management).

The program continues to make a significant impact on the Commonwealth, State and Local governments with over a 25-year track record of success. In 2015, the Australian Public Service Commission appointed the Queensland University of Technology (QUT) to deliver the program nationally. Program information, course fees and application details are now available on the QUT website.

The 2018 intake for the WA program commences on 9 April 2018 with applications closing 12 March 2018. Please refer to the information flyer for program dates.

2018 Scholarships

QUT is offering 10 full scholarships to the WA public sector valued at $10,650 each. Scholarships are limited to one per agency and are offered under a two for one arrangement with a second full fee paying enrolment from that agency.

These scholarships are offered in recognition of the significant public sector renewal underway in WA and the importance of building the capability of our public sector managers. It is anticipated this initiative will help build class sizes for the WA cohort to enhance the shared learning experience for all participants and improve the opportunity for participants from the same agency to support one another and embed their learning back in the workplace.

Agencies seeking to take advantage of the scholarship are encouraged to submit paired applications at the same time and should note on the Applicant Suitability Assessment Form for each that they are paired for the purposes of the scholarship offer.

Further enquiries about the program or how to apply should be directed to the QUT Business School at or by calling Dr Evelyne Meier on 0433 482 855.
