How might we build a modern, fit for purpose public service to improve the lives of citizens?

Around the world, people looking at the future of governance and how we might best grow contemporary capabilities efficiently and at scale to better meet the needs of citizens.
Traditionally, Government’s look outwards for solutions, however, with the growing understanding of the latent talent in Government, they are now looking inwards for the answers.

The VPS Academy is working at the forefront of this movement to shape a new way of collaborating and learning in government through peer learning.

Help us create a peer learning ecosystem

In a dynamic ecosystem, like the VPS, new challenges are constantly arising and evolving. In order to best equip those in the ecosystem with the capabilities to address challenges as they arise we need to find the most efficient ways to leverage the existing, relevant expertise & knowledge from within.

We are looking for innovative members of the Victorian Public Sector who are interested in peer learning as a way to develop new capabilities, collaborate with their peers, grow their impact and be better equipped to tackle existing and future challenges.
