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.
Building on feedback from registrants and COVID-19 developments, we are pleased to offer a hybrid format for the 2020 program, delivered with a combination of physical and virtual events. The format allows for meeting peers in person and building your networks, while also being mindful of alternative delivery models.
The program will proceed over a ten-week period, as follows:
Tuesday 1 September – physical launch event delivered in-person.
Wednesday 16 September – live-stream panel event with audience engagement.
Tuesday 13 October – live-stream panel event with audience engagement.
Tuesday 27 October – live-stream panel event with audience engagement.
Thursday 12 November – physical finale event delivered in-person.
The face-to-face events will be held at the National Portrait Gallery in Parkes, adhering to all physical distancing measures and protocols to ensure participant and staff safety.
Please note: the 2020 hybrid program is now full. Information on future programs:
On completion of the program we will evaluate the hybrid model and decide whether to proceed with additional deliveries in the future. Further updates will be provided on our website and through our weekly newsletter, IPAA Connect.
