7 February 2020

The February to July 2020 Diplomatic Academy L&D Calendar is now available.

The updated calendar includes courses through to July 2020.

In line with the objectives of the Australian Foreign Policy White Paper, the Academy is working to build international engagement capability across the Australian public service. It is working closely with the Australian Public Service Commission to ensure its curriculum complements broader leadership and core skills programs provided by the Commission. The Academy is also building links with foreign ministries and diplomatic training institutions in the Indo-Pacific region and around the world.

To achieve these outcomes, select Diplomatic Academy learning and development programs are available to Australian public servants, particularly those working to advance Australia's interests internationally, and foreign ministries and other organisations on a select basis where relevant.

We offer programs at the foundation, practitioner and expert levels through our Faculty structure as well as strategic cross-cutting themes of gender awareness, innovation, knowledge management, and leadership and values. These themes underpin all faculties and sit within Strategic and Specialist Programs.
