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 Information Pack. This provides lots of details about what to expect.

It is also worth talking with one or more Program graduates to get their views.

You can also attend one of our Information Sessions. This is not compulsory, but they do help you find out more and get your questions answered.

Complete your application form

To complete the application form simply apply now and type your responses directly into the spaces provided.

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 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 30 October to 3 November.


We aim to let applicants know before the end of the year whether they have been successful.


Every year many highly qualified applicants are chosen for the Tasmanian Leaders Program. This is because we need to select a diverse group and because of strict limits on the number of participants.

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