At the Advanced Diploma level of your career, you are someone who applies specialist skills and knowledge, combined with program management experience across a range of sectors.
A program is a set of connected projects. A program manager is responsible for the outcomes of multiple interrelated projects and the teams that undertake these projects. At this level, you are an individual who uses initiative and skill to design, plan, direct and lead a range of functions, with responsibility for individual and team performance.
You use well developed communication and reasoning skills to analyse a variety of information, and share your knowledge with team members. You use conceptual and creative skills to solve complex problems.
There are no pre-requisites to enrol in the Advanced Diploma of Program Management. It is comprised of 12 units of competency – four of which are core units (compulsory) and eight elective units (which allows some range to match your experience or interests to particular units).
The core units focus on the ability to execute a program, engage stakeholders, implement governance and manage benefits. Elective units include a wide range of topics including monitoring, evaluation and reporting, finance management, organisational change, developing emotional intelligence in teams, managing a flexible workforce, program delivery, risk analysis, collaborative alliances, developing contracts and community practices.

After multiple Middle Eastern deployments, Phillip sustained a training injury which meant it was time for him to start preparing to exit. He says the process of gaining RPL made him feel ‘legitimised,’ ‘recognised,’ and ‘given a fair go,’ after realising his specialist trade skills and experience within Defence didn’t translate to the outside world.
After 30 years in the Army, WO1 Allison decided it was time for a new challenge. She handed in her paperwork, separated earlier this year, and soon after was accepted for a new position with the help of an advanced diploma – awarded through recognition of prior learning (RPL) by Churchill Education. In this case study Allison shares her experience of being awarded qualifications through RPL and what it is like for women in defence.
