Mentoring Program

What is the purpose?

The IPAA ACT Mentoring Program aims to provide a unique and exciting development opportunity to build on your career performance and connect you with professional individuals and networks from across the Australian Public Service and ACT public sector, those seeking to mentor others (mentors) and those seeking to be mentored (mentees). 

Who can apply?

The program is run exclusively for IPAA ACT Corporate Members once a year. The pairing of mentors and mentees is undertaken by IPAA ACT, ensuring that mentors and mentees are hand selected from a range of portfolios across the Australian Public Service and the ACT Public Service.
