Vice-Chancellor's Professional Development Awards
The Vice-Chancellor's Professional Development Awards (VCPDA) provide an opportunity for professional staff to undertake a professional development program (identified in consultation with their manager/supervisor) that will assist the University in achieving its strategic objectives.
The award is in the form of a grant of up to an amount of $7,000 (per individual).
Awards are available for professional staff in three categories:
- HEW Level 6 and below
- HEW Level 7 and above
- International work placement/secondment
The new category, International work placement/secondment, has been introduced as a result of staff feedback at the Vice-Chancellor's first Google Hangout. This category will facilitate up to two international work placement/secondment opportunities for staff who apply and have an exceptional performance history. This award is aimed to further develop capabilities through a short-term (up to two months) work placement/secondment with an International institution/organisation that they can demonstrate has strong relevance and alignment to their role, and Deakin's strategic agenda.
