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 (VLA) is a new and progressive model to support this vision through leadership development aligned to the future needs of the sector.

Its goal is to equip our leaders with the required skills and capabilities to operate in an increasingly complex and changeable environment, and to deliver on the Government’s priorities for Victoria.

VLA equips Executive Officers with the skills they need to lead effectively in a complex and changeable environment.
