43 Performance Reporting Remote Workforce Development The Remote Workforce Development Strategy (RWDS) was launched in November 2003 and provides approximately $1 million a year towards the professional development of remote employees, improving NTPS service delivery and, by extension, fostering improved outcomes in remote locations. The strategy is a whole of government approach to improving links between agencies and addressing the challenges of distance, isolation and cost in providing support and development opportunities. The RWDS is a unique workforce development initiative providing additional support and professional development opportunities for remote based NTPS employees. Funding was awarded to 6 remote female employees to take part in the Discovery Women as Leaders Program in Alice Springs in 2008. Over 600 remote employees across the Northern Territory have received RWDS funding to attend professional development activities. Development Programs Public Sector Management Program OCPE hosts the Public Sector Management (PSM) Program in the Northern Territory. The PSM Program is a national management program for aspiring and current middle-tosenior managers working in local, state or Australian government across Australia. The program is carried out over 12 months and all participants that successfully complete the program will receive a Graduate Certificate in Public Sector Management from Flinders University. Since 1993 there have been a total of 583 graduates from this program and a further 19 participants are expected to graduate in late 2009. Discovery Women as Leaders Program The Discovery Women as Leaders Program is a unique personal and professional development program for women designed to increase the number of women in leadership roles across the NTPS. This is achieved by enabling women to develop greater confidence, learn leadership skills and build valuable support and business networks. The program is carried out over 3 modules and is offered twice a year, in Darwin and Alice Springs. The program was fully supported in 2008-09 with 22 participants on each program.
