Pacific institute to continue to help public sector leadership development


Pacific Institute of Leadership and Governance (Pilag) will continue to help public sector leadership development as it prepares for registrations this week.
This year would be the first full year under the new Pilag banner.
Institute chief executive officer Michael Barobe said they were more committed than ever to THE development of public service leaders. “Pilag provides vocational training that meets the needs of Government agencies,” he said.
“Our programmes prepare public servants to work capably and ethically by providing learning and development opportunities that are practical and relevant to PNG.”
While its name is still relatively new, the institute reflects the legacy of its predecessors — the Administrative College and the PNG Institute of Public Administration.
“It’s important that we modernise our training and our public service, but we must always maintain a connection to the Bully Beef Club and our country’s first generation of leaders,” Barobe said.
“They are an inspiration to us and to the future leaders who will train at Pilag.
“We are offering excellent diplomas and shorter course programmes commencing next month at our Waigani campus, as well as at the four regional training centres.”
The institute continued to deliver its programme of training to district and local level public servants, which is supported by the PNG-Australia Partnership and the Pacific Leadership and Governance Precinct.
