Boosting skills and confidence – Graduate Certificate Public Policy

February 22, 2016

A group of PNG public servants studying for a Graduate Certificate in Governance and Public Policy say the course is helping them improve policy and governance in their departments, and has boosted their skills and confidence.

The participating 18 mid to senior level public servants have been drawn from a range of national agencies and government departments. This semester they will focus on the legal aspects of policy and how they relate to governance.

The course, offered as part of the Pacific Leadership and Governance Precinct’s Executive Leadership Program, is delivered by the University of Queensland and involves study in PNG and Australia.

The study supports emerging leaders in the PNG public service, equips them with skills to negotiate challenging policy issues and provides a network to support each other as they progress.
