Undergraduate, postgraduate and technical studies at USP and FIT are available for sponsorship through the PSC Training Division. Approval may also be granted for officers to attend non-CTD short courses at other local training institutions.
- For USP and FIT Studies PSC will send a circular to invite nominations from Ministries/ Departments towards the end of each year for sponsorship for fulltime, part-time and extension studies.
- Officers should send their applications through their Head of Department who will submit these to PSC together with fully completed Training Nomination/Selection and Analysis form. For Non-CTD Short Courses approval may be granted to an officer on the recommendation of the Head of Department for training at a local institution.
- TPAF, PACSOFT, Aptech Computer Centre, SPC normally provide locally organised short courses, and other well recognized local training institutions. Officers may be given approval to attend short courses at these institutions if there is a need for such training, which is not available through Government sources. Participation costs involved may be paid by PSC or the Ministry/Department or by the officer.
- Application to attend such courses should be submitted to PSC through the officer’s Head of Department, supported by the relevant training forms.
For formal academic training at Universities and Technical Institutions, the trainee’s performance is continuously assessed by his/her examination results.
The award will depend on the individual’s academic performance for continuation or termination.
Officers undertaking visits, exchanges or attachments are required to submit a report in duplicate within 2 weeks of their return to work.
A further evaluation is done 3 months after the training where the trainee and his/her supervisor will assess the effectiveness of the training on actual job performance.
