The Perfect Candidate

Here to shift our national conversation from short-term problems to long-term solutions, The Perfect Candidate allows Australians to compare their concerns to the things our politicians are focussed on.

Powered by data and insights gathered from over 125,000 everyday Australians, The Perfect Candidate aims to provoke discussion about our long-term future and hold leaders and institutions to account by refocussing the national conversation on the issues Australians’ truly care about.

Parliamentary Leaders

Parliamentary Leaders Program

2020 dates announced soon

Governing in the 21st Century is more complex than ever, and unlike other professions, politicians receive no formal training or professional development.

Offered in partnership with The Australian National University, La Trobe University, The University of New South Wales, The University of Western Australia, The Jibb Foundation and Corporate Evolution, the Parliamentary Leaders Program is Australia’s only program dedicated to transforming the capabilities of the nation’s politicians. Off the back of five successful programs in recent years, the Parliamentary Leaders Program is being relaunched with a $100,000 scholarship fund.
