In this blog post, we will explore the increasing reliance on qualifications for pay raises in the public sector and how OPEC College’s Certificate IV, Diploma or Advanced Diploma of Government can pave the way towards your professional growth.
The Australian Government recently announced a 4% pay rise and additional 0.5% rise to superannuation for public sector workers, to improve retention and to attract new people to the work sector, starting from 1 July 2023.
As a result, there has been a notable shift towards considering an employee’s qualifications when evaluating pay raises. This shift signifies that enhancing your skill set and acquiring relevant qualifications can significantly impact your career progression and financial rewards.
