Management

Management development is the structured process by which managers enhance their skills, competence and/or knowledge, via formal or informal learning methods to the benefit of both individual and organisational performance.

The management development skills programmes cover aspects of organisational recruitment and assessment of executive level employees by training them in leadership to equip them for higher positions. This skills training includes the development of:

  • cognitive skills (thinking, idea generation, and decision making);
  • behavioural skills (choosing appropriate attitudes and values); and
  • environmental skills (suiting management styles to the situation).

Our subject matter experts focus on practical implementation rather than theory formulation. Attention is given to the processes that management should learn in order to lead their fellow employees and improve their management skills; not only to benefit themselves, but also their employing organisations.

The purpose of the NQF level 5 Public Administration qualification offered by Pro-Active College is to provide a structured programme for public officials that work with senior management officials, so as to provide support for strategic leadership and management needed to transform all spheres of government. The competencies covered in the proposed unit standards encapsulate the competencies required by public officials working at the operational level. Participants emerge from the programme with a highly enhanced self-confidence and extended basic competence in new areas.
