Graduate Development Program

Welcome to the Transport Graduate Development Program

In this 18 month learning journey you will develop a suite of skills designed to set you up for success in Transport. You will develop these skills via face-to-face learning sessions, online resources and group activities where you’ll have the opportunity to build a strong professional network with your fellow graduates.

The program consists of three units of work that align with your first three placements. Each unit consists of six topics – see the program outline below for more details.

These topics have been developed in consultation with previous graduates, placement managers and Transport leaders. Each topic focuses on skills and knowledge they believe are integral to success in your early career.

Focus on soft skills

You’ll notice there is a particular focus on ‘soft skills’, or interpersonal skills. This is intentional. As technology continues to evolve the workplace, ‘human skills’ such as problem solving, emotional intelligence, empathy, innovation, collaboration and creativity skills will become more valuable. Soft skills are also transferrable – they will be valuable in any role. If you'd like to learn more about the importance of soft skills in the future, check out this report.

Hard skills are skills you can gain through education, training programs, certifications, and on-the-job training. For example, a hard skill for an IT professional might be computer programming, while a hard skill for an Engineer might be technical drawing. You will develop your hard skills with your placement teams rather than through this program.

Active participation

The strategic intent of the Graduate Program is to build Transport’s future workforce: you will grow into leaders with cross-cluster knowledge, skills and networks. In addition to understanding your area of expertise, you will understand the projects, priorities, and challenges faced by other parts of our complex organisation.

Each placement will offer unique information and insights into your business area. We encourage you to share your information and insights. You can enhance the learning of other graduates by contributing real-life examples and scenarios, asking questions and submitting resources. You and your fellow graduates bring a wealth of knowledge and experience - by participating actively you can capitalise on each other's strengths.

Access course materials anytime anywhere

We understand that you want a flexible approach to work and learning. That’s why all important course materials will be saved on this site which is accessible from your phone, laptop or tablet.
