African Union Leadership Academy to partner with the SPMA

Posted on September 25, 2019

From 26 to 28 August 2019, the Director and Head of the School of Public Management and Administration (SPMA), Prof Margaret Chitiga-Mabugu, and Dr Tyanai Masiya attended a Transformational Leadership Workshop organised by the African Union Leadership Academy (AULA). The workshop was held at the Radisson Blue Hotel in Sandton, Johannesburg.
 
The AULA is pursuing collaboration with the University of Pretoria’s SPMA and four other African universities with a view to offer a joint degree and short leadership courses. The AULA seeks to equip African Union human capital, with the knowledge, skills and mindsets needed to achieve the goals of Agenda 2063, as well as become a centre of excellence in the area of public sector administration. It offers support to current senior public servants and middle managers from the African Union Commission (AUC), its organs, regional economic communities (RECs) and member states by improving their leadership and managerial skills.
 
In addition, it strives to induct public servants into contextualised African system of leadership development that is adapted to the continent’s needs. The Academy also aims to train emerging young African leaders who will form the future elite of the AU, its member states, and related organisations. The workshop mapped the way forward in terms of curriculum content and an implementation plan. The AULA anticipates piloting the short courses in September 2019. The SPMA is expected to be among the two institutions where the courses will be piloted.
