Supporting defence industry leaders

The South Australia Defence Industry Leadership Program will continue in 2019, with more than $87,000 in Skilling South Australia funding secured for 25 participants.

The program will build existing leaders’ professional, behavioural and management leadership skills to prepare for unprecedented economic growth and opportunity from projects such as future frigates and future submarines.

Participants come from a range of organisations across defence and manufacturing industries. They’ll complete either an Advanced Diploma or Diploma of Leadership and Management, over an eight-month period through a higher-apprenticeship training model.
