Digital Graduate Program Graduation

Congratulations from The Emerging Talent Team at the Australian Public Service Commission for the successful completion of your Digital Emerging Talent Program! 

Digital Graduate Program

It has been our great privilege to see the growth and development in you all, from as early as your application and interview for the Program, through to your Graduation today.

Your graduation recognises the hard work and effort you have displayed throughout your program. This includes the completion of your qualification and the contribution you’ve made to your agency to improve the lives of all Australians.

We acknowledge and appreciate you have completed your Graduate Program during a time of enormous change. You all successfully managed your studies and a very different work landscape. This strength and resilience will serve you well in your digital careers and lead you to great success.

Unfortunately, the current situation prevents us holding a large Graduation ceremony to celebrate your achievements. We hope the following messages capture the spirit of Graduation and we sincerely hope you enjoy viewing the messages in your own time, celebrating with family and friends.

Once again, well done and congratulations to you all!
