VPS
Academy

With so many skills and so much knowledge within the VPS, we should look to our peers for learning and collaboration opportunities. 

VPS Academy is a peer learning network and our goal is to connect innovative members of the VPS. 

Let us do the hard work and match you with colleagues who can help you develop the capabilities and skills that you require.
HOW TO USE THE PLATFORM
We’re creating useful relationships between peers across the VPS.
Let’s look for answers internally before engaging costly consultants
Innovation is primarily about people rather than technology or process, it all starts with a conversation…

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.
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.

Learn from Internal Innovators

Our team from across the VPS hold unique capabilities that they are happy to share.

The Academy will match you with these peers who can help develop your capabilities, provide you with collaboration opportunities, and expand your professional networks.
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.
