The greatest asset of any organisation is its ‘people’. The development of the workforce is core to meeting future challenges and delivering outcomes.

QUT is experienced in working with government nationally and our programs are specifically designed and delivered to take into account:

  • the current and future context of Government;
  • the scale and complexity of changes that are impacting the work of the Australian Public Service and the broader public sector; and
  • the unique challenges these present.

Our proven co-design approach is central to success. We work with government, jointly designing programs to deliver immediate workforce capability uplift and return on investment, through real-world application.

If you want to be at the leading edge, chat with us about developing tailored learning experiences to keep your organisation future-ready and future-fit.

Key trends impacting this sector

Service-wide transformation

“…the APS needs a service -wide transformation to achieve better outcomes. It needs short-term change and long-term reform to serve the Government, Parliament and the Australian public more effectively and efficiently — now and in the years ahead.” Our Public Service, Our Future. Independent Review of the APS (2019)

The key to achieving transformation, while continuing to accelerate delivery of current priorities, is building the capability of the public service workforce, individually and collectively.

The challenge is not confined to a particular level of the service, and it encompasses not only recruiting and equipping new public servants with the necessary tools, but also building the capability of existing public servants. While preparing public servants to get maximum value out of new and emerging technologies is a key priority, even more fundamental is the need to equip them to work together collaboratively and across boundaries, adapting to constant change in their organisations and the demands being placed on them.

This is why we have worked to develop our capabilities to tailor our programs to immediate client needs, using that short-term uplift to instill the capabilities required to meet long-term challenges and uncertainty.

Departments we’ve worked with

We excel in consultative partnerships, and our iterative program design and development methodology ensures on-time delivery and world-class education quality.
