New to the APS or SES

Building an understanding of the APS and how it operates is critical to help you succeed in your new role.  

We have a number of courses that can support your new APS career, including:

APS Online Induction Portal

The APS Online Induction Portal includes a range of eLearning modules, videos, and guides aimed to prepare new APS employees to work effectively in the APS operating environment. The modules generally each take between 15-20 minutes to complete.

To access the Portal, an administrator in your HR area will need to assign employees a login and password. If your agency has not yet signed up to administer the portal learningdesign [at] apsc.gov.au

SES Orientation

SES Orientation is the first step in building the foundation for senior leadership in the APS. The program helps you to transition into the SES by understanding expectations at this level. The program covers the importance of your stewardship role and your broader accountabilities at the SES level.  It also helps you to build a network across the APS.

SES Orientation is suitable for people currently transitioning into APS SES Band 1 roles with less than 12 months experience (including acting at level).

It is delivered over four-months and complements agency-specific orientation.

To register for SES Orientation visit APSLearn.
