SEVERAL public servants will do courses at the Divine Word University as part of the government’s aim to build a competent public service workforce, says the government’s human resource manager.
Secretary of the Department of Personnel Management (DPM) John Kali said this was possible through the public sector workforce development programme.
Kali said a memorandum of understanding was signed recently by his department and the university, paving the way for the officers to pursue their studies.
He said 10 officers from government institutions would be undertaking a masters level course in public administration while 12
district administrators would pursue Bachelor in Public Administration.
“The (workforce) programme has been offering sponsorship for interested public servants to undertake certificate, diploma, bachelor and masters degree programmes at in tertiary institutions around the country,” Kali said.
He said this year saw the first batch graduate at the Divine Word University and the PNG Institute of Public Administration with various qualifications.
He said DPM would continue rolling out the programme as it realised its importance to contribute to leadership and good governance in the public service.
Kali encouraged public sector agencies to participate in the programme and consider giving equal opportunity to women.
An advertisement was recently published in the media requesting public servants to submit their expressions of interest.
