Policy practitioners

The Public Sector Commission is committed to building the future capacity of the public sector by developing effective working relationships with agencies to ensure developmental programs and initiatives meet identified needs.

The Commission aims to support that commitment by working collaboratively with public sector agencies to deliver flexible, quality learning and development strategies that will develop policy practitioner knowledge and skills across the sector.

Policy practitioner forums are a development initiative co-sponsored by the Department of the Premier and Cabinet, the lead agency responsible for government policy management.   


The purpose of the forum is to:

  • raise awareness of policy issues and highlight skills important to the policy journey
  • provide a forum for the exchange of ideas, opinions and knowledge amongst policy practitioners across the sector
  • identify opportunities for policy practitioners to network and work collaboratively to share expertise and experience across the sector
  • identify, prioritise and address the policy practitioner training and development needs within the public sector
  • build policy capability across the public sector.
