Civil service College designs and delivers core and tailor made training Programmes in line with the Uganda Public Service Training Policy.
The College designs and delivers Core learning Programmes that are centrally commissioned to address cross-cutting capacity needs of all public officers in Government Ministries, Departments, Agencies (MDAs) and Local Governments (LGs). These Programmes are mandatory and the categories of officers to be trained are invited from time to time in accordance with the Training Calendar.
To deliver its mandate effectively and efficiently, the Uganda Public Service requires officers, who are team builders, flexible, client oriented, adopt quickly, go an extra mile to achieve results; officers who know what makes a difference in performance and are able to deliver that difference. Such officers cannot be selected using the traditional recruitment approach that emphasizes academic qualifications because such criterion does not give information on the behavioural issues that affect performance of an individual. Competence-Based Recruitment Training Programme has been developed to enhance the capability of service commissions to select the best people with the required skills as well as attitudes to do the work.
These are designed and implemented to meet specific needs of a requesting institution. The programmes are customised in terms of content and duration of specific teams of various sizes. They are conducted on mutually agreed dates. We need at least a month advance notice to prepare for the programme.
