ACELG consortium partner the UTS Centre for Local Government (UTS:CLG) has developed a master’s level program tailored to local government in Australia and its contemporary issues.

Applications for this unique program close 30 June.

The Master of Local Government program provides graduates with the necessary managerial skills and knowledge relevant to the local government sector and its changing needs and priorities.

The Australian Centre of Excellence for Local Government (ACELG) has supported the program's development under its Learning in Local Government initiative.

"The program provides graduates with an evidence-based learning approach," said Director of ACELG and UTS:CLG, Associate Professor Roberta Ryan:

"It enables graduates to build a high level of influence and leadership in their local government workplace, and to achieve public and community value."

"Senior staff in local government are expected to understand and know how to apply the latest sector thinking and practices. The master’s program delivers this while speaking a local government language throughout."

Core program subjects focus on leadership, management and governance in local government and a range of elective subjects cover a variety of contemporary sector issues, topics and the skills needed to address them. Students are guided by academics and associates who are leaders in the area of local government and are active in practice.

"The program has been designed with local government professionals in mind. Participants can prepare a personal study plan that matches the specific requirements of their work, career and other commitments."

Applications close 30 June 2014. For more information click here, or contact Gabrielle Watterson: [email protected] / 02 9514 1659.
