Military education and training
The Australian Command and Staff College (ACSC) aims to prepare selected career officers for command and staff appointments at the O5 level in single Service, joint and integrated environments. With officers from the Australian Regular and Reserve military, the Australian Public Service, and from over 20 allied and partner countries represented at ACSC, course members are exposed to a sometimes challenging diversity of perspectives and given invaluable opportunity to establish firm professional and personal relationships with the future leaders of Australian, allied and partner forces.
The Australian Defence College (ADC) delivers courses, doctrine, exercises and programs of study to prepare Australian and overseas Defence force personnel, government officials and national security practitioners for strategic roles within joint and combined operating environments. ADC centres include the Centre for Defence & Strategic Studies, the Australian Command & Staff College, the Australian Defence Force Academy and the Joint Warfare, Doctrine and Training Centre.
The Australian Defence Force Academy is a unique institution which helps develop the future leaders of the Australian armed forces. It does so by providing Navy midshipmen and Army and Air Force officer cadets (cadets) with an education and training that is academically and militarily challenging.
The Australian Defence Force Cadets (ADFC) aims to be Australia's leading youth development organisation. The ADFC consists of four organisations: the Australian Defence Force Cadets (ADFC), the Australian Navy Cadets (ANC), the Australian Army Cadets (AAC) and the Australian Air Force Cadets (AAFC).
