This bespoke development program seeks to refine and strengthen leadership skills measured against the NSW Public Sector Leadership Framework. It is available for Departmental Secretaries and the Commissioner of Police.
Each professional’s career journey and development needs are unique. Therefore, the Leadership Academy provides a tailored approach on this program. It consists of a 360 assessment and personalised mix of coaching to suit individual development plans. Participants are also encouraged to participate in and champion policy challenges with other Leadership Academy cohorts (a unique opportunity to ‘learn from the centre’).
In consultation with their coach, participants can also identify opportunities relevant to their own development needs, such as attending a specialised leadership course at a global tertiary institution. Attendance at specialised courses is approved by the Public Service Commission (PSC) Commissioner but funded by individual departments.
The Public Service Commission (PSC) has an established funding agreement with the NSW public sector for the core Leadership Academy Programs. The PSC administers these programs on behalf of the sector. Any further education, travel and accommodation costs are to be met by the agency/individual.
