The Professional Development Program (PDP) encompasses a range of training and resources designed to enhance and develop skills and knowledge to support MOP(S) Act employees in current and future roles.

The PDP is predominately provided on MOP(S) Learning, an online learning management system that all ongoing and non-ongoing MOP(S) Act employees have default access to. Staff can access learning through a range of methods, with live learning experiences delivered virtually or face-to-face as well as self-paced options through e-learning and resources e.g. tools, templates, articles, books, podcasts, and videos)
