Training & Personal Development at Department of the Prime Minister and Cabinet (PM&C)

Please describe the training programmes at your company and tell us what skills you've picked up.

At PM&C you do get access to some amazing seminars and speakers. However, formal training is not greatly developed.
Entry level, Canberra
Much of the grad training is unnecessary, low-level or repetitive. However, there are opportunities to arrange your own training which is a strength of the Department.
Graduate, Canberra
Formal training is available however as part of the Graduate programme we are required to complete set training, however not all of these were available.

HR mandated training is quite unhelpful and disorganised. Very hard to book in relevant training to yourself - training requests specific to your needs gets knocked back without too much interest or communication or logical reasoning.
Graduate, Canberra
Grad training was poorly targeted. Now that we can choose our own development training, it’s better.
Midlevel, Canberra
Graduates are required to do a lot of training that is not relevant to our jobs/aimed below our level.
Graduate, Canberra
Training is fairly standard, not really challenging, diverse or innovative, and is generally aimed at a fairly low, basic level, and seems to be quite ad hoc.
Entry level, Canberra
Some of the training is not well targeted. The organisation can sometimes recruit poor trainers, particularly for graduates.

Good opportunities throughout the Graduate program and ongoing training. My current team offers $500 per year for outside of the Department training opportunities.
Graduate, Canberra
The graduate training program was terrible. The training was predominately useless except for 1-2 courses.
Entry level, Canberra
Graduate year has a large number of training hours and a training budget. Quality of training varies. Following graduate year I had the opportunity to continue to undertake training.
