Management and Development Series - A Pathway to SAES

This series explores eight core topics for middle to senior level public sector leaders, who are seeking to enhance and develop their management and leadership skills and for those who are aspiring the pathway to SAES. The series of modules align across all three tiers in SA Government that can be completed as an extended program or as individual units.
These topics are focussed on providing public sector leaders with practical tools to apply in their workplace to enhance performance and productivity. As a consequence each session is ‘built’ around a framework that is derived from tried and proven research. Participants explore the model and its various components and then have the opportunity to practice and apply the associated tools and techniques in their workplace.

Disrupting the Silos: Optimising social and economic investment
The purpose of this Forum is to promote discussion and highlight examples of collaborative action across the South Australian government, and between governments and the community sector, and to consider ways to build joined up approaches which achieve better outcomes for the community.
Failure to collaborate often means the policies, programs and services we delivery are less effective than they could be, and the community is less well served, at times ‘falling through the gaps’.
So we want you to attend this important forum to be a part of the conversation and to:-
Tell us what you think
Tell us about your experiences
Hear from us about our experiences
Identify new ways of doing things together

The introduction of the Independent Commissioner Against Corruption Act 2012 (ICAC Act) impacts all public officers and public authorities working in South Australian public administration. If you are a public officer or public authority you need to conduct yourself in accordance with the ICAC Act and the Directions and Guidelines published by the Independent Commissioner Against Corruption.
This information and awareness seminar will be conducted by the Commissioner, the Hon Bruce Lander QC.
The Commissioner will address ICAC’s role and function, in addition to explaining what you are to report, how you are to report , when you are to report, and other rights and obligations imposed on South Australian public officers and public authorities under the ICAC Act.
Aspiring Women gives female employees a structured and safe space to take a fresh look at where they are and where they want to be: maybe thinking about promotion, or gaining more qualifications. Perhaps there has been a lot of organisational change and they need time to regroup and deal with their feelings? Or maybe they need to look at work/home balance and improving relationships and leisure time? It is personal development so looks at all aspects of life, work and home and it has been carefully developed by Samantha who has years of experience in developing women.

DID YOU KNOW?
As a Government Employee you can benefit from the partnership arrangement that the Institute of Public Administration (IPAA) has with the Senior Management Council (SMC) of the State Government which entitles you to free entry to most IPAA events and preferential rates on all courses within our Professional Development Program.
IPAA is developing professional capability standards to encourage the development of high quality, capable and professional public servants. The use of these capability standards should contribute to improved value for money for government businesses, higher quality and consistent public sector performance, and enhance the careers of those working at the professional level within the public sector.
The standards are intended to articulate seamlessly with current and future public sector frameworks at the National, State, Territory and Local government levels. In developing each standard, IPAA has collaborated with interested relevant public sector agencies, not for profit professional bodies, and organisation in the private, Tertiary and VET sector.
