As the association for the public sector in NSW, our aim is to promote the relevance, integrity, reputation and intellectual rigour of the Australian public sector. Our training programs are designed to support this vision, and to upskill and enhance the professional development of our members, and the wider sector.

We are recognised for our outstanding service and for delivering relevant, high-quality, cost-effective learning and development programs that are aligned with the NSW Public Sector Capability Framework.

The courses in our Public Training Program are designed to meet the significant training needs of the sector, and are delivered face-to-face, where participants can share ideas and experiences in a professional learning environment. The content of each course is based on research conducted with public sector organisations, and supports current government policy directions. 

Our facilitators are leading experts in their subject matter, and bring these courses to life through practical application, case studies and interactive content.

All of our public courses are available as Customised Agency Programs. In-house delivery offers flexibility in content, length and timetable.
