In 2018 Programmed partnered with Victoria Polytechnic and the Programmed Facility Management (PFM) team, headed up by Julian Kinder, to develop a water sector leadership program.

It’s designed to prepare emerging leaders working in operational roles in the water industry. 

The tailored program, with a strong focus on the water industry, was delivered over a 12 month period, with a blended delivery approach of onsite and distance learning. Its purpose was to develop leadership and strategic skills in an operational and maintenance environment.

Funded by Programmed, the cohort of trainees included operational representatives from across both the City West Water and Water Corporation contracts in Victoria, where participants collaborated and shared information on best practice with their water industry colleagues.

Victoria Polytechnic were impressed with the results.

“Victoria Polytechnic values the opportunity to engage with industry partners, such as Programmed, who are genuinely committed to developing staff.” they said.

“Our relationship with Programmed has been in place for many years, and it has developed according to changing needs, training products, and changes in the workplace. 

Developing staff, not just training, has been, and continues to be, the goal of our partnership, which will benefit staff and the overall organisation now and into the future.”

Congratulations to all our team members who completed this study.
