The Na­tional School of Gov­ern­ment (NSG) has joined forces with the Sec­re­tar­iat for the African Man­age­ment Devel­op­ment In­sti­tutes' Net­work to de­sign a course that will see im­prove­ments to pub­lic ser­vice and ad­min­is­tra­tion.

The NSG, which is the South African gov­ern­ment's train­ing or­gan­i­sa­tion for the pub­lic sec­tor, re­cently con­vened a two-day work­shop with the aim to so­licit in­puts from ex­perts on ma­te­rial for the course.

The devel­op­ment of the cur­ricu­lum con­tent is be­ing done con­sul­ta­tively with in­put from ex­perts in the field of Pub­lic Ad­min­is­tra­tion.Those who do the course will gain con­cep­tual and prac­ti­cal un­der­stand­ing of the African Char­ter for Val­ues and Prin­ci­ples of the Pub­lic Ser­vice and Ad­min­is­tra­tion.

It is ex­pected that stu­dents will be equipped with the abil­ity to ap­ply these val­ues and prin­ci­ples in the work­place. Ul­ti­mately, the course is aimed at build­ing ef­fec­tive and ef­fi­cient pub­lic ser­vice in­sti­tu­tions in Africa.

“The work­shop was a wa­ter­shed one in the on­go­ing trans­for­ma­tion and re­de­vel­op­ment of the pub­lic ser­vice into a pro­fes­sional, de­pend­able, knowl­edge­able and eth­i­cally grounded force, serv­ing the peo­ple of Africa,” said Pro­fes­sor Itume­leng Mos­ala, an aca­demic and a for­mer Di­rec­tor-Gen­eral.

The work­shop was the third fol­low­ing sim­i­lar work­shops in Uganda and Sene­gal. Ex­perts who con­trib­uted to the devel­op­ment of the course dur­ing this work­shop were from higher ed­u­ca­tion in­sti­tu­tions, KZN Train­ing Acad­emy and gov­ern­ment de­part­ments.
