Applying for the Tasmanian Leaders Program is simple. Just follow these straightforward steps.

Get ready

Before starting your application form, we recommend you read the Tasmanian Leaders Program 2025 Information Pack. This provides details about what to expect, key dates and benefits to you and your employer.

It is also worth talking with one or more Program graduates to hear about their leadership development journey and experience from their own perspective. You can do this by attending one of our Information Sessions, or getting in contact with a past graduate via our Graduate Search. Attendance at the Information Sessions is not compulsory, but strongly encouraged to help you to find the answers to your questions, and get to know our team.

Complete your application form

To complete the application form simply click: Apply Now and type your responses directly into the spaces provided in the online form. You can return to your saved work at any point using the details that will be emailed to you. Complete all sections in full. Don’t be modest, though make sure your answers are concise and to the point.

Submit your application form

Submit your final application online by noon on 1 October. We will acknowledge receipt of your application by email.

Short-listing & Interviews

The Tasmanian Leaders Program selection panel reviews all applications and prepares a shortlist for interview.

Shortlisted applicants should prepare for a virtual interview between 28 October to 1 November.


We aim to let applicants know before the end of the year of the outcome of their application.


Every year many highly qualified applicants are not chosen for the Tasmanian Leaders Program. Program places are hotly contested, with strict limitations on the number of participants and diversity requirements.

If you are not successful in 2025, we do encourage you to reapply in subsequent years.
