Your Association is proud to recommend and support the Gwen Martin Scholarship (GMS), in honour of Gwen Martin, a retired Detective Inspector, who was the first female elected to the Executive of the Police Association of New South Wales in 1979.
The purpose of this scholarship is to allow a female Executive Member, Branch Official, Delegate to Conference or Activist the opportunity to complete an approved course, “Balance - Women Leaders in Public Safety” through the Australian Institute of Police Management (AIPM) in Manly.
This course comprises of two residential periods – 31 March to 3 April 2020 and 24 to 26 June 2020, linked by eleven weeks of workplace development support (distance education). Applicants will need to be available on these dates to attend.
The successful applicants will be expected to be an ambassador of PANSW, to extend and grow our business as determined by the strategic direction and our mission statement, which is endorsed by the Executive. This may include, but not limited to speaking at the PANSW Women's Forum, attending some Branch Focus Courses/Forums and attending at least one Executive meeting during the 12 month scholarship.
Special Leave has been requested to be approved by the HR Command of NSWPF for the residential component of the course. All costs associated with the course will be met by PANSW including travel and accommodation if required.
