The Melbourne School of Government is designed to inspire and equip individuals to make a difference on a global scale. Through rigorous research, teaching and debate, we convert shared knowledge into collective wisdom influencing politics and decision-making to improve future outcomes.
Social and Sustainable Procurement
Government departments and agencies are the largest purchasers of goods, services and construction projects in Australia. The potential for public expenditure to improve social and economic outcomes is significant, and social procurement policies and initiatives are on the increase across all levels of government in Australia.
Craft of Government
At the Melbourne School of Government, we see ‘craft’ as a set of skills and ways of working that has developed over many years in government but often is not formally codified. Courses in this series offer more than training, you will develop higher analytical skills to help you transform your practice and make a positive impact in your work.
Pathways to Politics Program for Women
In Australia, less than one-third of all parliamentarians and one-fifth of all ministers are women. The Pathways to Politics Program for Women will address this under-representation by providing hands-on training and networking opportunities for women who aspire to elected office.
