Please see the Graduate School of Development Policy and Practice (GSDPP) website for more information on programmes and courses offered.

The School promotes the development of strategic public leadership, including a strong emphasis on accountability and trust in governance.

The Graduate School of Development Policy and Practice (GSDPP) provides professional and academic training for senior public officials and those engaged in public policy in South Africa, other African countries, and beyond.The School also trains top graduates to prepare them for public leadership positions and provides executive training for senior managers and elected office bearers. Some of its programmes are also designed for international organisations, non-profit organisations, think-tanks and the private sector

One of the School’s core activities is bringing together policy makers, experts and other leaders in society around key policy issues. The centrepiece of this effort is the newly launched Building Bridges programme which will bring together established and rising leaders from all over Africa to engage with so-called “wicked problems” with the view to establishing new networks of expertise and trust.
