Defence Industry Leadership Program

Leadership development and succession planning is critical to a strong, sustainable and vibrant defence industry.

The Defence Industry Leadership Program is a targeted, hands on professional development program that provides employees in the defence industry with personal and professional leadership skills.

The Defence Industry Leadership Program attracts participants from all levels of organisations and from a wide range of sectors connected to the defence industry, including Defence Primes, SMEs, State and Federal Government agencies, professional services and other connected industry sectors.

The rapid growth of the defence sector over the coming decade will require the defence industry to accelerate the expansion and potential of its workforce. This includes a need for defence employees to focus on leadership education and personal and professional development.

Since its inception in 2010, over 262 industry participants have graduated from the program.
