The Governor's Leadership Foundation Program

The Governor's Leadership Foundation (GLF) program is the eminent leadership initiative in South Australia. It is designed to broaden, enhance and accelerate leadership capability through the provision of high-end development for people who are already leaders in their field and who have demonstrated the potential to become future leaders in our State.

 

The GLF has a unique format that is focussed on the development and enhancement of practical wisdom through reflection (reading, thinking, discussing), learning from leaders at the forefront of the critical economic, environmental, social and cultural issues in our society, as well as immersion in the kind of 'out of the comfort zone' experiences that shake up world views and broaden and deepen understanding. Those selected are from diverse backgrounds. The GLF Program provides them with an invaluable opportunity to broaden their knowledge of complex issues, develop their strategic foresight capacity and expand their self-awareness and wisdom. They will exchange ideas with established leaders at the forefront of their field and explore aspects of our society they might otherwise have never experienced. This is done over 10 months, through a combination of weekly, full and half-day seminars, evening forums, lunches, field trips, weekend retreats and other interactive sessions. Over this intensive period and beyond Graduates expand their self-awareness and wisdom, improve their resilience, decision-making and reasoning capability, confidence and motivation levels, tap into an invaluable support network of peers and learn new models and concepts to apply in their field. Beyond the initial program year, participants become part of a dynamic network of graduates and are provided with ongoing opportunities for leadership development, skills expansion, community involvement and social connection.

 

The GLF makes a significant contribution to the South Australian community and is recognised and valued by the State's existing leaders. The program has an important link to the Office of the Governor of South Australia through its patronage and support of the program. Participants are invited to attend State lunches with visiting international dignitaries at Government House throughout their program year.

 

The Program

  • Challenges participants to think beyond individual interests and to rise above adversarial approaches;
  • Facilitates participants to move out of their 'comfort zone' through experiential sessions which gives them an 'insider's view' of complex issues and aspects of our society that they might otherwise never experience;
  • Allows them to recognise that there is some truth on all sides of the most polarised issues in our society and organisations today;
  • Enables participants to communicate with established leaders (both presenters and other participants) - to consider the challenges they have faced, the ways in which they have brought about change and the lessons they have learned;
  • Promotes a continuing network of Fellows (alumni) committed to improving the economic, environmental, social and cultural evolution of our society. Participants who successfully complete the 10-month program (February to November) are awarded a Fellowship and invited to become a member of the alumni Network of Fellows.

On satisfactory completion of the program year participants are awarded a Fellowship by His Excellency, Rear Admiral Kevin Scarce AC CSC RANR Governor of South Australia.

 

Beyond the program year, graduates become part of a distinguished alumni network and are provided with ongoing opportunities for leadership development, community involvement and social connection.

 

Each year applications for this unique and outstanding leadership development opportunity open in July and final selection of participants is made in November. The cost of participation in this outstanding and unique program is $11,000 plus GST. A limited number of full and part scholarships are available for outstanding applicants who do not have the means to pay.

 

Further information about the GLF Program, including presenters and testimonials from previous participants, can be found on the Leaders Institute website at http://www.leadersinstitute.com.au/programs/governors-leadership-foundation/index.html  and can also be contacted at admin@leadersinstitute.com.au.

 

 

Public Sector Management Program

The Public Sector Management Program (degree is a Graduate Certificate in Business, Public Sector Management)  has been offered nationally by  the Australian Public Service Commission (APSC) since 1991 to employees of the public sector.  

 

To encourage LG participation in this post graduate course, QUT is offering a limited number of Public Sector Management Program (PSMP) scholarships in 2017 to LG employees, that is,  on a two for one basis. When two LG employees apply (they do not need to be from the same Council), the cost of the $10,350 course fee is split, allowing each successful applicant to complete a Graduate Certificate in Business (Public Sector Management) for only $5,175.

 

QUT delivers the Program in all capital cities with  an engaging and relevant curriculum, using a unique blend of work-based learning, workshops and a virtual learning environment.

 

The program will develop your understanding of the role of the business of government and your management capacity to:

    - understand and effectively manage the business of government

    - think systemically in an ambiguous and contestable world

    - be accountable and be held to account

    - become a reflective practitioner

    - better manage relationships for customer and business outcomes

    - enable self and others for productivity and performance.

 

The PSM Program takes 15 months to complete.

Local Government Training Package

The Local Government Training Package provides a comprehensive vocational training tool for Councils across the nation. The Training Package (in conjunction with units from other Vocational & Educational Training (VET) Packages) identifies the skills and knowledge required for the effective operation of the sector.

 

The Training Package provides:

A full range of nationally recognised and transportable qualifications for employees from entry-level to middle management across all areas of the workforce;

An assessment strategy which recognises skills achieved in the workplace not just through formal training, and offers an opportunity for people who have been working in the sector but who do not have a qualification, to have their skills recognised and rewarded, and any future training counted towards a national credential;

Training programs which can be used to support new apprenticeships and traineeships within the sector. This means that new entrants to Local Government can receive high quality and relevant training, and employers can participate in the incentives offered by government to organisations that employ and train new workers; and

A training specification which can be used by Councils when negotiating the planning and delivery of training with training providers.

 

The Local Government Training Package comprises 22 qualifications ranging from Certificate 1 to Advanced Diploma under seven different streams:

Local Government.

Local Government Administration.

Local Government (Health and Environment).

Local Government (Regulatory Services).

Local Government (Land Management).

Local Government (Planning).

Local Government (Operational Works).

 

The qualifications and packaging rules are designed to enable two types of outcomes:

Generic (or generalist) qualifications that will be particularly useful for Council employees who work across a wide range of functions and require breadth and variety in their qualifications.

Specialist qualifications that reflect the functions performed in a range of technical and specialist areas of Council such as operational works, health and environment, regulatory services, planning and land management.

 

Employees may also be eligible for accreditation for some units through a Recognition of Prior Learning (RPL) process. They will be assisted by the course presenter (Registered Training Organisation) to identify the areas of experience that might lead to automatic credit for specific units.

 

The Vocational Education and Training (VET) framework enables:

VET and University graduates entering Local Government with existing qualifications to undertake a specialist function such as health and environment to 'sandwich' these vocationally specific skills with core induction skills that will provide the industry context for their work and a pathway to management in higher level Graduate Certificate qualifications, and

new entrants without existing qualifications and industry skills to commence employment within a Council and be supported (typically through a Traineeship or Apprenticeship) to gain initial industry specific skills and nationally recognised vocationally specific qualifications gained from the Local Government Training Package or another industry Training Package. The framework would then provide a pathway to supervision, management and leadership in Local Government as the individual's career progressed.
