Overview and Responsibilities

The Australian Electoral Commission (AEC) is an independent statutory authority established by the Australian Government to maintain an impartial and independent electoral system for eligible voters through active electoral roll management, efficient delivery of polling services, and targeted education and public awareness programs. The National Training and Education Unit (NTEU) is a specialist team of skilled practitioners in the field of training and education with extensive electoral experience. The Unit is responsible for the delivery of high quality training, development and education that professionalises the AEC’s workforce and builds knowledge of electoral processes in our stakeholders. The NTEU is a dispersed team and operates as an agile pool, where staff take responsibility for diverse projects and programs and report to different supervisors depending on the assignment of work. The AEC is committed to the APS values of being impartial, committed to service, accountable, respectful and ethical. The Senior Training and Development Officer supports the Assistant Directors in the design and development of learning and development programs and products in the National Training and Education Unit within the Office of the Deputy Electoral Commissioner. The Senior Training and Development Officer also participates in unit planning for short term tasks and contributes to strategic planning for longer term initiatives.
