2016 Professional Development Program

January - June 2016 Professional Development Program - Out Now!


2016 IPAA National Conference

The 2016 IPAA National Conference in Adelaide – Innovation through Collaboration – being held on 20 and 21 October 2016 at the Adelaide Convention Centre - will be a dynamic and provocative look at how the public sector promotes and constrains innovation and collaboration in Australia, and how it can re-shape its ethos and culture in an up-to-the-minute context.
It will feature international and national leaders from politics, media, government, business, social and community services, and academia, and showcase global and local approaches to innovation through collaboration.

The conference will provide a focus on how Australians need to be ambitious about ways in which we collaborate to make major innovations in service delivery. The question will also be posed - will the public sector be a force for change, or a barrier to prosperity?

The National Conference will be the centrepiece of a week-long democracy festival – “Open State” – which will comprise a series of events organised by the Department of the Premier and Cabinet around community engagement and participative democracy as outlined in the State Government’s policy paper “Reforming Democracy”.

IPAA Professional Standards

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.
