This is a signature programme for the development of career civil servants and other public sector managers. It is designed to serve the future development of the public service and its renewal process.

 

Significant changes are in the offing in the management of the public service. This is dictated by inevitable changes occurring in the country's political, social and economic landscape and places significant requirements upon the public service to be responsive. In fact, in line with international developments, the agenda for change is evolving, broadening and deepening at Federal, State and Local Government levels.
