Date: 13 Oct 2017

The National School of Government (NSG) will be hosting the 19th Public Sector Trainers’ Forum Conference from 16 – 18 October 2017. This is a biennial event that provides opportunity to human resource development practitioners to reflect critically on their role in the context of building a capable and developmental state. Among others, the conference will discuss strategies for career pathing, mentoring, knowledge management, utilisation of technologies in training and development, as well as how trainers/facilitators for public sector can be professionalised to empower other public servants.

In this year’s PSTF Conference, the NSG will be launching the Public Service Training & Capacity Building Programme in partnership with the European Union. The partnership is for a period of four years during which the EU will be supporting the NSG in various areas such as curriculum development and training methodologies so that it can fulfil its training mandate better. Minister Faith Muthambi will be hosting His Excellency, Ambassador Mr Marcus Cornaro, of the EU Delegation of the Republic of South Africa.

The conference will take place for three days (16th – 18th October) after which resolutions for the next two years will be made and the Deputy Minister for MPSA will deliver the closing address on the last day.
