Our Faculties


The Diplomatic Academy offers an annual curriculum of professional skills development across nine faculties covering the full range of the Department of Foreign Affairs and Trade operations.

There are also strategic cross-cutting themes: gender awareness; innovation; knowledge management; and leadership and values. These themes underpin all faculties and sit within Strategic and Specialist Programs.

Programs are open to other APS agencies, to international partners, and to other organisations on a select basis and where relevant. See the Learning & Development Calendar.
