Learning and development

At Treasury, we are committed to building the capabilities of our employees. Through encouraging professional development through workplace-based learning and formal learning opportunities, we know our employees will be more engaged, productive, creative and innovative in their roles.

Supporting individual development

We encourage our employees to develop a range and depth of career experience and to seek out and engage with learning and development opportunities, with the aim of ensuring our workforce is well-rounded and strategically positioned to meet current and future government priorities.

At Treasury, we understand that capability development is mostly experiential – through action, practice and reflection – and we are committed to providing a safe environment for employees to learn and practice new skills. Our employees can further build their capabilities across our department and the Queensland public sector through applying for roles advertised in our online vacancies portal.

Developing our leaders and managers

We encourage and support our leaders and managers to practise genuine and outcome-focused leadership. On-the-job experiences and assignments within Treasury and across the public sector, complemented with formal training opportunities, support our leaders and managers to strengthen their leadership qualities and capabilities.

Our Executive Development Program has been designed by Treasury for Treasury, to build strong leadership capability across our department. Participants complete the program over 12 months and are supported by a Director-General or Deputy Director-General mentor, face-to-face workshops, professional coaching, webinars, pre-reading and e-learning modules.

Supporting academic achievement and commitment

We encourage employees to build their capability through further education to directly contribute to the achievement of departmental objectives. If our employees are studying for a recognised academic qualification, they can apply for financial and leave assistance from Treasury through the government’s study research and assistance scheme (SARAS). All permanent full time and part time Treasury employees are eligible to apply for this assistance.
