The Directorate continues to support staff to attend relevant risk management training programs.

The redevelopment of the Directorate’s risk registers in 2020-21 also involved a series of workshops with business units in the following terms:

  • Risk Management Introduction
  • Drafting the Risk Registers
  • Settling the Risk Registers

This incorporated the active participation of approximately 60 staff across a variety of business units in the development of their local risk register.

In 2020-21, nine Directorate staff attended project management training courses which included a risk management and awareness component. Staff also participated in the Protective Security Policy Framework Awareness e-learning and face to face training program which helps staff understand the policy framework and how it applies to them as ACT Government employees.

The Directorate also focused on fraud prevention training to minimise the risk of this occurring and to encourage staff to report concerns. This is highlighted in section B.6 Fraud Prevention.

Staff now have access to several e-learning programs via the ACTGOV Learn ACTPS Training Calendar.

Risk Awareness and Training Courses offered in 2020-21 included:
