Professional Development

For nearly sixty years the Institute has provided an extensive range of executive development programmes, short training courses and organisational development supports for new and experienced managers, administrators and technical staff across the public sector in addition to opportunities for dialogue, debate and exchange of experience and views. At a time of complex and rapid change and given the need for greater accountability, integration and mobility across the public service, our innovative learning approaches enable public servants to build the knowledge and capabilities necessary to lead, manage and immediately apply new insights to their issues and challenges.
