Graduate Program Relocation Guidelines 2023

If you have trouble accessing this document, please contact us to request a copy in a format you can use.

The Department of Education will provide reasonable relocation assistance for participants in the Graduate Program who are required to relocate to Canberra to take up employment with the department.

The eligible amount of relocation assistance received will depend on the graduate’s current home location and their personal situation such as dependants. Relocation assistance may include access to up to 21 nights temporary accommodation and reimbursement of up to a specified cap amount to cover reasonable relocation costs.

This assistance is intended to help with relocation costs, but not to mirror living or lifestyle circumstances at the pre and post locality. It is important to note it may not cover all the costs of relocation, so please ensure you familiarise yourself with these guidelines. All requests for reimbursement or prepayment are subject to approval by the Director, Recruitment Team prior to any relocation taking place.
