 Why Study with Us?

Our courses are developed after broad consultation with various stakeholders from the industry (government, Non-governmental organizations and the private sector). Thus, the courses are designed to provide utmost benefits of the knowledge and skills gained from the training, education, research and consultancy services provided by the department. Our short courses and programmes are presented by experienced staff. The training programmes are conducted in a professional manner. Training programmes are offered in interactive-face-to-face workshop style. So, the trainings employ a participatory methodology during the delivery of each of the training phases and the units comprising the module. The reasons advanced relate to the opportunities it provides for adult participants to modify the learning content and tailoring it to their work contexts.
