UNE Partnerships has worked closely with the NSW Public Service Commission on the Diploma component of the Program since the inception of this program in 2016, where the inaugural intake was open to 25 recruits. Today, the NSW Government Graduate Program has surpassed the popularity of many of the country’s traditional graduate preferences, including half of the ‘Big Four’ consulting firms.
The program provides Graduates with exposure to a range of agencies and departments across three six-month rotations. This experience is underpinned through a tailored Diploma of Government qualification, which UNE Partnerships delivers using a combination of workshops, online study, coaching and practical workplace application of learning.
The NSW Government Graduate Program has not only grown in popularity over the past few years, it has also dramatically grown in scale. More than 180 graduates were welcomed into the 2019 intake in Sydney on Monday 11 February 2019, where there was a high level of energy and excitement amongst new recruits.
UNE Partnerships Academic Director (Government) Sean O’Toole has worked closely with the NSW Public Service Commission to contexualise the Diploma of Government to meet the specific needs of the NSW Public Service and the NSW Government Graduate Program since its inception.
”One of the greatest strengths of this program is how it has been highly customised to reflect the most innovative contemporary thinking about working in government in the NSW context. We are also very proud of our near 100% completion rate over several hundred graduates”
UNE Partnerships congratulates the NSW Public Service Commission on the recognition they have achieved for the NSW Government Graduate Program and wish 2019 recruits every success over the coming 18 months and beyond.
