The National School of Government (NSG) seeks to build an effective and professional public sector as part of its response to the National Development Plan. Building a capable developmental state requires public servants who are able to master the basics of public service and administration. The NSG plays a pivotal role in this process by ensuring that public servants display the knowledge, skills, attitudes and values necessary to diligently serve citizens.
The NSG is mandated to provide and facilitate education, training and development to all employees at all levels in the in the public sector. To date, the emphasis has been on training public servants at senior, middle and lower levels.
