Mobilising Our Workforce
VPS Academy is a pilot sponsored by VPSCIIN and co-led by Peer Academy. The purpose of the pilot is to validate a model for a peer learning platform, one which empowers staff and grows a whole of Government approach through the sharing of skills, resources and ideas.
In 2016, VPS Academy created demonstrable value in 4 key areas:
800% time saving
Increasing outputs through reduced duplication
1 – 2 days saving in outreach time
Accessing the right people and knowledge faster
82% greater growth
Increasing opportunities for development and growth
$159 in savings
Providing relevant and quality training at a lower cost
How it Works?
By participating in the VPS Academy, facilitators have the opportunity to undergo training with Peer Academy to design and deliver a practical peer learning session in a skill area of your choice.
After 2 successful pilots, VPSCIIN and Peer Academy are set to deliver the third iteration of VPS Academy.
As a all of Government initiative, we’re now seeking facilitators to lead the growth of the Academy. Staff from any department of Government are encouraged to get involved.
