SENIOR government officials at director level will be able to attain for themselves a Professional Diploma in Business Leadership from the USP's Regional Centre for Continuing and Community Education.
Public Service Commission permanent secretary Parmesh Chand said they were determined to ensure senior executives were equipped with the proper skills and capabilities.
"Due to the high number of officers at senior executive level, participants have been divided into four cohorts of up to 30 per group with the first group of officers starting their training next week Tuesday, December 18, at the Public Service Centre for Training and Development (PSCTD)."
The USP designed the eight module program that includes face to face workshops, workplace and online learning.
The leadership program is expected to be completed by September 2013 and will be spread out at intervals to avoid disruptions to the flow of work in respective ministries and departments.
