Crawford School of Public Policy is in the College of Asia and the Pacific, at The Australian National University – Australia’s leading university.
The School's approach to policy draws on the complementarity between, on the one hand, disciplinary excellence in the core areas of economics, governance, environment and development and, on the other, deep country and region specific knowledge of Asia and the Pacific, including Australia.
We offer executive programs that can be specifically tailored to meet the training needs of public and corporate sector organisations which can be delivered to any number of participants.
Be supported by Engineers Australia to build your engineering competency and become Chartered
The Professional Development Program (PDP) is one of the four pathways that Engineers Australia offers for members to achieve the Chartered credential.
Chartered Status means you have risen as a leader in the profession by demonstrating next-level thinking and your commitment to upholding the highest standards of practice.
The PDP is the best way for individuals, or for Organisations to support their employees, to work through the Chartered application requirements in a structured and supported process.
All elected health and safety representatives (HSRs) are entitled to undertake WorkSafe Victoria approved occupational health and safety (OHS) training.

2014 Writing Clear Science Workshops
Who Will Benefit?
We teach writing from a broad perspective that encompasses a wide range of science backgrounds including both industry and academic research-based projects. We teach how to design documents according to audience (e.g. industry, peer review), purpose (e.g. monitoring report, journal article) and the type of research or project problem that needs to be solved.
The Standard 2 Day Workshop
The writing workshops are usually presented as The Standard 2 Day Workshop. The modules cover all aspects of writing from discussing common problems, recommending efficient practices, improving writing style, reworking sentence structure and paragraph structure, and analysing section and whole report structure. We review the standard scientific reporting framework, how to prepare reports and papers, and discuss how to clearly and concisely communicate a research project to a chosen audience. In addition, across the two days, we conduct editing, writing and re-writing exercises, where we teach how to improve writing through effective editing skills and critical review techniques.
PHD Opportunity - Tackling Prey Naiveté in Australia’s Endangered Mammals
Project outline: Predation by cats and foxes is the chief cause of reintroduction failure in Australian mammals. Australian mammals are vulnerable to predation because they have not evolved effective defences against these introduced predators.
This project will determine if predator training and selective screening of individuals for predator avoidance traits can improve reintroduction success. The results will be used to improve re-introduction protocols for threatened mammals and re-establish populations of endangered wildlife.
The professional development hub for sustainability practitioners.
If you use Education for Sustainability in your work you will love the new Education for Sustainability Professional Learning Hub (the Hub).
The Hub has been developed by Office of Environment & Heritage following extensive research to find out what the real learning needs of EfS practitioners are.
