The nomination process applies to all our signature programs. Band 4 - Leading the sector is an opt-in program.
The Leadership Academy opens the nomination process in the second half of each calendar year, and Cluster Leads manage the nomination process for all agencies across their cluster.
Nominees are endorsed by the cluster Secretary prior to being submitted to the NSW Leadership Academy team within the NSW Public Service Commission.
For information about the cluster talent review process, as well as nomination process, please contact your agency Human Resources team.
When selecting participants to a signature Leadership Academy program, cluster agencies are asked to consider
- The Secretaries Board criteria for high potential / high performing criteria (refer to table below)
- The NSW Public Service Commission Talent Review Framework which was developed with the sector. Alternatively, a cluster specific talent review process could be used.
In line with the Premier’s Priority to achieve a world-class public service, consideration is also given to the diversity of nominees in the final shortlist.
All nominees are expected to meet the eligibility criteria and commit to meeting program expectations.
