What's new? 

The Induction Program is available face to screen to all new and existing employees. New dates for face to face sessions have been added to the calendar and will be available starting February 2023 across all states.

The program covers HR terms and conditions, WHS obligations, health & wellbeing and support options available to you. The engaging face to face sessions will provide you with an opportunity to hear from our HR experts, interact with and meet other MoP(S) Act staff from across your state and get to know your Commonwealth Parliamentary Office (CPO).

If you would like to discuss options for office-based sessions delivered to your team in an electorate office, please contact mopstraining@finance.gov.au.
