The IPAA Future Leaders Program provides an exciting development opportunity for emerging leaders in the public sector.
The program aims to provide emerging and future leaders with an opportunity to discuss and debate challenges relevant to them, broadening their perspective in the public service, whilst networking with participants from across the sectors.
The program is an interactive series of five events and discussions, providing an opportunity for participants to learn how they can improve the future of the public sector. Importantly, the program is not a training course, rather of series of curated experiences integrated through the following activities:
The program presents an excellent opportunity to build networks and connections across the sector.
The program seeks emerging and future leaders who are passionate, established and engaged about the public sector in their workplace, with aspirations of progressing to management roles.
Participants should be at the APS6 to EL1 level, or equivalent levels for private sector or academia. Please note that this program is not targeted at people currently undertaking a graduate program.
The delivery of three programs was originally planned for 2020. This had to be put on hold and redesigned due to COVID-19. We now delivering two programs, with strictly limited numbers.
Keeping COVID-19 developments in mind, we are pleased to offer the current programs as physical events. If COVID-19 restrictions are implemented by the ACT Government, the format may move to a hybrid event model, which would involve the delivery of some sessions online.
