The State Government via the South Australian Department of Primary Industries and Regions (PIRSA) has allocated an additional $2 million in funding to extend the phenomenally successful Regional Leadership Development Program, fostering future leaders in regional South Australia.

The program is delivered through Regional Development Australia Eyre Peninsula (RDAEP) and is facilitated to fill the gaps in leadership training. This program meets the specific needs of our community, while also reducing participant travel and increasing accessibility for previously under-represented leadership cohorts such as women and local First Nations participants.

In 2023, 25 participants from Eyre Peninsula completed the 10-month program. The program has resulted in many participants either taking up roles on community boards or committees or increasing their commitments on these bodies.

In 2024, RDAEP are pleased to continue leading the delivery of the program, making further use of their expansive regional networks.

Applications for this program will open soon – stay tuned!

We look forward to the program commencing soon and will provide updates throughout the year regarding participants and outcomes of the program.
