Public Sector Management Program (PSMP) Aboriginal Scholarships

*Nominations for 2016 are now CLOSED*

The State Service Management Office (SSMO) is offering scholarships to enable two Aboriginal employees within the State Service to participate in the Public Sector Management Program (PSMP).

SSMO in conjunction with The Training Consortium (TTC), are running a process to select two scholarship recipients.

Public Sector Management Program 

The Public Sector Management (PSM) Program is a flexible and dynamic study option catering specifically for mid-level managers in the Public Service. The program develops participants’ understanding of the role of the business of government and develops their management capacity to:

  • understand and effectively manage the business of government
  • think systemically in an ambiguous and contestable world
  • be accountable and be held to account
  • become reflective practitioners
  • manage relationships for customer and business outcomes
  • enable self and others for productivity and performance.

The four unit course is delivered over 15 months and is focused around four intensive 3-4 day workshops, plus the completion of a work-based project.

Participants earn a Graduate Certificate in Business (Public Sector Management)

The nomination process is being coordinated by the State Service Management Office.
