Aboriginal Pathway to the VPS GRADS, 2013
Aboriginal Pathway Graduate 2013
What did you study?
What attracted you to apply for the Aboriginal Pathway to the GRADS?
I really liked the idea that we rotate to three different departments throughout the year, but that you also have an ongoing job at the end of the program.
What do/ did you enjoy about the graduate program?
I enjoyed the training and professional development opportunities that were given to me throughout the year. I also made some really good friends through GRADS.
How did entering the GRADS via the Aboriginal Pathway help you?
There was a lot of support and assistance offered via entering through the Pathway. It also linked you in with a great group of people, both other graduates and more senior public servants, which was a big help when I first started.
What kind of impact has the GRADS and the Aboriginal Pathway had on your life and career?
A huge impact. I moved from Adelaide to take part in the GRADS program and the Pathway lead me to meeting some of my best friends here in Melbourne.
