The PWSS encourages learning and professional development for all MOP(S) Act employees with the support of your employing parliamentarian. A range of learning options are available including:

  • Education, training and resources – PWSS Academy (MOP(S) tailored Professional Development Program)
  • Ad hoc training requests
  • Studies assistance (financial and study leave)
  • WHS roles

Should your office identify training that is not currently available through the PDP, please contact training@pwss.gov.au to discuss further.

Training provided through home departments

If you are a personal employee of a Minister, Assistant Minister or Presiding Officer and the home department provides training related to the portfolio, the home department will in most cases cover all costs associated with this training. This includes meeting the cost for all ad hoc training. In all other instances for personal employees, the PWSS will consider requests for reimbursements.

Contact your home department’s learning and development team for further information on training options if relevant.
