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.
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.
