Public Sector eLearning

Public Sector Industrial Relations offers the opportunity for employee relations and human resources professionals to accelerate their knowledge and understanding of employee relations in the NSW public sector through the completion of our eLearning program.

Participants can seek to have their eLearning formally recognised through attainment of verified digital credentials that can be shared digitally. This requires participants to register and pass a short assessment for each eLearning module completed. Learn more about digital credentials.               

How will I benefit?

Our eLearning will provide you with essential knowledge that NSW public sector industrial relations professionals require to competently perform their role.

It will help you navigate through the NSW public sector industrial relations framework and avoid non-compliance with industrial laws that could result in legal risk or reputational damage to your agency.

Whether you are new to the public sector, transitioning from a human resources or related role, have higher-level oversight of industrial relations or simply need to update your knowledge or fill some gaps, the eLearning will benefit you.

How will my Organisation benefit?

Our eLearning aims to achieve a baseline of industrial relations knowledge in all agencies across the sector. It will upskill human resources and industrial relations professionals with sector-specific employee relations knowledge.

The eLearning will promote compliance and consistency of practice. This will mitigate risk for your agency and the NSW public sector.

It will also increase employee mobility by reducing barriers to promotion to broader or higher-level roles.
