School for (absolutely no) scandal

Starting July, mandarins will have their own “new, networked model for learning and development,” the Australian Public Service Academy

It will offer, “a new, networked model for learning and development in the APS,” Assistant Minister for the Public Service, Ben Morton announces.

Although based in Old Parliament House, it will also offer on-line programmes and “develop external networks with academic institutions and specialist providers.”

And it will design and deliver programmes in cooperation with agencies that have “known strengths” in a bunch of areas. One of which is, “continuing to promote a pro-integrity culture.” Bit of a worry if they all aren’t on that list.
