Graduate Program

A number of the positions within the Graduate Program each year are designated to be filled with people from an Aboriginal or Torres Strait Islander background and/or People with Disability. Find out more about the Graduate Program.


The ACTPS offers traineeships for Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander peoples and People with Disability.

The traineeships included formal and on-the-job learning and development. On successful completion of the program each trainee achieves a Certificate level qualification and permanent position in the ACT Public Service.

Applications for the next round of traineeships will open in late 2017.
