Our purpose is to advance excellence in the public sector.

How We Do It
We believe that members of the public service make a difference, which is why we are committed to helping you succeed.
We are not a union, so we don’t comment on public sector industrial relations issues or other political situations. Rather, we strive to make the general public and wider community aware of current and potential future issues to promote ethical governance and overall excellence in the sector. As a strong membership organisation, we welcome new members from both the public and private sectors who are passionate about the professionalism and future of WA.
The Institute offers extensive opportunities to enrich your professional development through workshops, seminars, briefings and customised programs:
