Professional development and further study

Your development is just as important to us as it is to you. Our logic is simple – as you grow and develop your skills and experience, so does the contribution you make to corporate and team goals.

We encourage the development of our graduates through a comprehensive internal training program that is supported by development opportunities outside the Directorate. We have access to regularly-delivered technical and developmental training opportunities available to our staff, some internal to ASD, others available via the Defence Business Training Centre and the Australian Public Service Commission.

Further study is also encouraged once you have completed the 12-month program, with a wide range of post-graduate university study supported by ASD internal programs, as well as Defence-wide programs through Studybank and the Australian Defence Force Academy.

Our focus is on maintaining a leading-edge technical base with a leadership program designed for our unique organisational culture.
