Short Learning Programmes

Emerging Management Development Programme

The National School of Government (NSG) has been established to develop “a professional, responsive and capable public sector”. As part of its mission, NSG collaborates with higher education institutions in South Africa, and the Tshwane University of Technology (TUT) is one of them. NSG has partnered with TUT in the ​delivery of Emerging and Advanced Development Management Programmes. These programmes were approved by the Senate as credit-bearing Short Learning Programmes (SLP). Their articulation routes are the National Diploma and B Tech in Public Management, respectively.
The involvement of TUT in the delivery of these programmes for the NSG allows the University to directly contribute towards building the capacity of the state. This is beyond the monetary benefit of third-stream income. The partnership asserts TUT’s competitive edge in the knowledge market. It profiles its capacity as a national asset which exists for the public good. The articulation arrangements are structured to attract experienced government officials to, upon completion of the programmes, further their studies with the University. This allows TUT to attract mature students into its mainstream programmes. The University’s association with NSG further assists in curricula development endeavours, where the contextual relevance of its instructional programmes is assured.
