Application Process for Centrally Funded Courses
The Public Service Commission funds places in three courses:
Executive Master of Public Administration
The Executive Master of Public Administration is a two year part-time post graduate degree. Ten subjects are delivered by the Australia and New Zealand School of Government (ANZSOG) and participating universities.
Graduate Diploma in Public Administration
The Graduate Diploma in Public Administration is an eighteen months part-time post graduate qualification. Six units are delivered by the Graduate School of Government at the University of Sydney.
NSW Executive Development Program
The Executive Development Program is a short course of approximately 10 days over 6 months. Three modules are delivered by an external course provider on behalf of the Public Service Commission.
Agencies wishing to fund additional places for the Executive Development Program and the Graduate Diploma in Public Administration can do so by emailing NSW_Public_Service_Commission_courses@psc.nsw.gov.au up until October 2013.
The annual application process takes place from June to August each year. The initial selection and prioritisation of individual applicants is the responsibility of each agency. The Public Service Commission allocates places to agencies.
The target group for all courses is high potential employees at Grade 11/12 and above (or equivalent).
