Top 3 Public Sector Qualifications

Public sector qualifications are a great way to demonstrate your skill and versatility. Instead of leaving the public service when you are ready for a career change, you can instead look at a department shift.

Around 2 million Australians are employed in the public sector. This equates to approximately 8% of the entire population. Public sector jobs span every level of government from Commonwealth to state and local.

Public sector jobs are on the rise and offer many benefits such as security and stability. As a nation, we spend in excess of $165 million on public servant salaries and wages.

Transforming your public sector experience into qualifications through Recognition of Prior Learning (RPL) is a significant advantage when it comes to applying for a promotion within your current department, switching to a new department, or to a new industry altogether.
