Eligible African public servants have been urged to submit their applications for the AIG Public Leaders Programme Cohort 4 before Tuesday, April 30, 2024.

This call for entries was made by Aig-Imoukhuede Foundation and the applications are to be filed through, a statement disclosed.

Applicants must be working in the public sector in Africa, with a minimum of seven years of active service, at grade levels 12-17, and aged between 35-50 years at the time of application.

The AIG Public Leaders Programme is tailored for senior public leaders and delivered in partnership with the Blavatnik School of Government, University of Oxford.

The scheme provides an opportunity for participants to expand their conceptual frameworks and acquire practical tools essential for addressing challenges they face, including bureaucratic inefficiencies, political interference, and the inadequacy of structures and processes for effective policy development and implementation.

The programme features a comprehensive curriculum designed to accelerate the mastery of essential competencies crucial for effective governance, covering topics ranging from governing in times of challenge and change, harnessing digital technologies, the pitfalls in decision-making, integrity in public life and strengthening public organisations.

Through a blend of rigorous academic instruction, interactive workshops, and peer-to-peer learning, participants will engage in immersive experiences that enable them to lead with confidence and competence.

In line with the foundation’s commitment to capacity building within the public sector, scholarships will be awarded to eligible African public servants who successfully scale through the selection process.

“At the Aig-Imoukhuede Foundation, we believe that building a critical mass of public sector leaders who are equipped with the skills, knowledge and tools to make a change in the public sector is essential in our mission of transforming public service delivery.

“The AIG Public Leaders Programme exemplifies our commitment to empowering senior public officials in their bid to drive meaningful change and address systemic issues like bureaucratic inefficiency, inadequate infrastructure, and the need for digitalisation in the public sector,” the Executive Vice-Chair of the Aig-Imoukhuede Foundation, Mrs Ofovwe Aig-Imoukhuede, said.

Since its inception, the Aig-Imoukhuede Foundation has been dedicated to empowering officials within the public sector.

The organisation, which intends to train over 3,000 public servants over the next decade, has so far trained over 500 public servants across various capacity-building initiatives.

These individuals have made significant contributions to their Ministries, Departments, and Agencies, driving positive change and shaping the future of governance across the continent.
