To meet the challenges facing Victoria, our public sector needs high performing, diverse and collaborative leaders who deliver quality services and outcomes for our community.

The Victorian Leadership Academy is a new and progressive model to achieve this vision for leadership development.

The Academy will use enhanced data and analytics to build a sector-wide view of leadership development requirements and opportunities.

Starting in 2017, all Victorian public service executives will undergo expert, external assessment, including 360° surveys, psychometric assessment, ability testing, face to face interaction, and behavioural exercises.

All executives will then receive individualised feedback and tailored development plans, aligned with the Victorian Public Sector Leadership Capability Framework.

The Academy’s creation follows extensive research and consultation in both public and private sector, internationally and at home.  Endorsed by the Victorian Secretaries Board, it is administered by VPSC.

A new Academy website is currently being developed and will go live in 2017. In the interim, Academy updates and news can be found on this page.

We are committed to providing the best possible service and welcome your questions and feedback.

The Academy is on track to provide the Victorian Secretaries Board with extensive data and analysis on the leadership capability of the Victorian Public Service executive workforce from July 2017.
