Bespoke and international programs

National Security College Building

The National Security College’s tailor-made policy programs are designed for a range of public and private sector clients to build capacity, dialogue or shared analytical problem-solving among multiple agencies and even countries. We can customise our existing courses or work with you to develop new programs that meet your organisation’s needs. All programs are facilitated by a specialised and unique concentration of subject matter expertise and applied national security policy-making. We use a specifically formulated blend of the latest teaching methods, including syndicate groups, panel discussions, site visits, hypotheticals and scenarios, to test and develop ideas. NSC track record in this area includes:

  • tailored graduate training programs, such as for the departments of Foreign Affairs and Trade, and Defence

  • analytical workshops on complex policy issues

  • futures scenario workshops

  • international study groups or fellowships

  • diplomatic capacity-building programs for officials from multiple regional countries to build shared understandings of security perspectives and challenges.

These programs can be delivered at a classified or unclassified level either in-house at your organisation, at the National Security College, or at other locations in Australia or overseas. For further more information and a confidential consultation, please contact a member of our experienced learning and development team.
