About the Qualification
PSP50122 Diploma of Government is a qualification that reflects the skills and knowledge it takes to perform effectively as a government employee. It examines a spread of skills and knowledge in operating ethically within legislative requirements and environments. This Diploma of Government is relevant to public servants in roles from Commonwealth, State and Local governments.
When we started Churchill Education back in 2006, it was’t very common to see people obtain the Diploma of Government through Recognition of Prior Learning. In the last 5 years, we have seen a real shift in Departments looking at these qualifications as a minimum benchmark for their teams.
In some teams, holding the Diploma of Government is also linked to mandatory pay increases.
After a review was completed in 2022 of all Australia’s Public Sector Package qualifications, the latest and current version of this qualification can be recognised by the code PSP50122.
The earlier qualification was PSP50116 Diploma of Government. Whilst the spirit of the earlier qualification aligned with the latest version, there have been some changes made to ensure that when you graduate with PSP50122 Diploma of Government, you are possessing the range of skills and knowledge that modern workplaces demand.
When we begin to examine the opportunities for public service employment it makes sense that the Diploma of Government has become a more widely recognised qualification.
As a significant and competitive employment opportunity, if you are an experienced public servant it is wise to capitalise on your experience to obtain the PSP50122 Diploma of Government through Recognition of Prior Learning (RPL).

Once the core units have been addressed, the 6 elective units balance specialist public sector skills and transferable skills.
For example, a specialist government sector skill can be the ability to evaluate and report on workplace legislative compliance requirements.
For example, a transferable skill that is valued outside of the public service is your ability to coordinate resource allocation and usage.
