Program management

Excellence in academic program management is essential for a successful and transformative student learning experience.

Program management for everyone

A collaborative approach for program teams.

This resource is designed to support RMIT staff performing the complex and challenging roles around program management. It focuses on specific capability development for Program Managers, Course Coordinators and Program Coordinators and offers a just-in-time portal to policies, tools, training and relevant information.

It is designed to encourage a collaborative approach – in recognition that “program management” is often a distributed function across program teams, not necessarily the responsibility of one person alone. It also takes account of the wider “tertiary” context of RMIT, i.e. across Higher Education and VET sectors and both regulatory frameworks.

In addition to resources for program management, an equivalent resource is also available for course coordination.
