Setting up an account
Applications for the Tasmanian Leaders Program must be completed using our on-line application form. To access this form you will be required to create an account at http://portal.tasmanianleaders.org.au/login. The account process is simple, and will take less than two minutes. Once you have created your account you will also be able to download an Information Pack, view a sample application form and register for one of our Information Sessions.
Before starting the application form, please ensure you have familiarised yourself with the 2019 Tasmanian Leaders Program Information Pack. This document is available on our portal at the link above, or to the right of this page. While this document provides much detail about what to expect we also encourage you to talk with a previous graduate or attend one of our Information Sessions held across the state in August. It is not compulsory to attend these sessions they are however a great opportunity to learn more about the program, and what it can do for you. At the sessions you’ll have the chance to speak with and hear from the General Manager and past participants, to seek answers to any questions you may have.
Completing the application form
To complete the Application Form simply login to your account using your self selected user name and password and type your responses directly into the spaces provided. You can return to your saved work at any point by logging in using your username and password. You should complete all sections in full. Don’t be modest, though please ensure your answers are to the point.

Selection and re-application
Please note that each year many highly qualified applicants will not be chosen for the Tasmanian Leaders Program because of the need to select a diverse group in terms of background, career and personal experiences, gender, geography, ideas and beliefs and because of strict limits on the number of participants possible in each program. We encourage individuals not selected to reapply in subsequent years.
