Several experienced managers from a number of state government departments have recently completed a custom-built executive leadership program, culminating in a Postgraduate Certificate in Business with Murdoch University.
Dean of Engagement, Associate Professor Noordin Shehabuddeen said the University was proud to deliver the program.
This is a wonderful example of how practice-led learning is designed and delivered in genuine partnership with WA’s four key agencies, representing different, yet uniquely adjacent sectors.
“What an opportune moment as we prepare to roll out Executive Education programmes in our brand-new CBD space, enabling busy professionals to personalise their learning and gain micro-credits on the go.”
This year has seen the fifth iteration of the program with graduates from the Department of Fire and Emergency Services (DFES), WA Police (WAPoL), Department of Biodiversity, Conversation and Attractions (DBCA) and the Department of Justice.
The program provides access to high-quality tertiary education and international best practices to busy public servants. It also offers non-tertiary education holders with sufficient leadership experience, an opportunity to participate.
Guests heard from Fire and Emergency Services Deputy Commissioner Mal Cronstedt, who told the group that the program represents a major element of the DFES Professional Pathways educational framework.
The program consists of four interlinked units designed to develop organisational capability and portable skills.
