Careering Options Scholarship

The Careering Options Scholarship was established seven years ago to encourage and enable our contractors to refresh and develop their knowledge and skills.

This year's recipients are Lucy Saunders and Debbie Gee. 

Lucy will attend a two-day course on the modern data landscape and the presentation and use of data to inform decision-making. With data becoming more critical to government decision-making across a wide range of sectors, Lucy is looking to strengthen her skills in interpreting data when working on policy projects.

Debbie Gee will undertake the Advanced Certificate in Engagement, a course for experienced engagement practitioners who want to update their learning and qualifications with contemporary concepts and standards for stakeholder and community engagement. 

Applications for the 2018 Scholarship close on 8 October 2018.
