New PS Short Course Dates

Updated 27 days ago

Positions are filling up quickly for our short courses with the following starting later this month with a few spots left:


Course in Public Sector Policy and Project Work – Thursdays, 21 July 2022 (BHPPP54)

Course in Public Sector Policy and Project Work – Mondays, 25 July 2022 (MPPPP48)

Course in Public Sector Management – Tuesdays, 26 July 2022 (MPMAN49)

The courses are worth on average approximately $1,400 per student but CPSU has negotiated the seven courses to be offered to VPS employees completely free of charge.


PSP Public Sector Training Package

The courses have been developed by CPSU and VPSC to build capability and capacity in priority roles across the public sector.

These courses group one enterprise unit of competency (about working effectively in a mobile and flexible public sector) with specific units of competency from the PSP Public Sector Training Package to build industry-identified niche skills required by public sector workers now and for the future.

CPSU have negotiated that the seven courses will be offered by TAFEs to VPS employees completely free of charge for 2021-2023.

Each course:

  • is delivered online and free of charge
  • requires successful applicants to attend one training session per week for the duration of the course (approx. 09:30-4pm)
  • requires the successful applicant to complete some reading/assessment tasks outside of class (approximately 4 hours per training session); and
  • complements and provides learners with a pathway into PSP Public Sector Training Package qualifications.

Applicants who wish to register their interest in a short course must have the approval and support of their manager to undertake it, and will be required to provide confirmation of this approval when completing the online EOI.

The target group for these courses during the pilot is VPS workers without relevant qualifications or the skills and knowledge required to work across a range of government areas or who wish to move into different areas of government.

These public sector courses are not aimed at public sector executive staff.
