The Manager Essentials Program (MEP) is a whole-of-service high quality program designed and developed to increase the fundamental and essential management capabilities of all State Service Managers.
The program is endorsed by the Head of the State Service and all Heads of Departments, as a commitment to identifying and developing current managers in the State Service.
The Program will:
MEP is delivered over twelve months and consists of four active learning modules bookended by two half day workshops. The program involves commitment and focus from participants. It will require participants to engage with the learning activities and materials with up to 2-3 hours per week of study required.
MEP incorporates a series of stand-alone active learning modules delivered as individual development workshops – aimed at front-line, mid-level managers or senior managers across the Tasmanian State Service. The learning modules provide managers with skills and tools to equip them to better manage.
Participants can choose to complete one or all of the stand-alone learning modules. The option of completing all enables participants to obtain essential management skills required for management roles across the broader State Service.
Module 1 - Understanding self and developing others: the reflective mindset
Module 2 - Understanding government and governance
Module 3 - Managing People
Module 4 - Creating a Positive Work Environment
Each learning module begins with a Getting Started Guide. The Getting Started Guides incorporate a series of self-directed learning activities and includes pre-reading materials; tasks and online information. This is followed by a face-to-face workshop allowing participants to explore the challenges in more details. Applying the learning will be through a management challenge inquiry. The learning module ends with an On-the-Job learning guide which contains resources/tools and development options to help embed the learning long term.
The program is aimed at new or current/existing State Service Managers (Band 6, 7 and 8) or equivalent roles that have responsibilities for the full range of management functions (people, budgets, resources). Participants must have direct reports and supervise between four and eight people.
It is essential that participants are current managers.
