Focus: Knowledge Management in Government
Country: South Africa

The development of the curriculum content is done consultatively with input from experts in the field of Public Administration. Those who do the course will gain conceptual and practical understanding of the African Charter for Values and Principles of the Public Service and Administration. 
It is expected that students will be equipped with the ability to apply these values and principles in the workplace. Ultimately, the course is aimed at building effective and efficient public service institutions in Africa. 
“The workshop was a watershed one in the ongoing transformation and redevelopment of the public service into a professional, dependable, knowledgeable and ethically grounded force, serving the people of Africa,” said Professor Itumeleng Mosala, an academic and former Director General. 
The workshop was the third one following similar workshops in Uganda and Senegal. Experts who contributed to the development of the course during this workshop were from higher education institutions, KZN Training Academy and government departments. 
The African Charter for Values and Principles of the Public Service and Administration was adopted by the 16th Ordinary Session of the African Union Assembly on 31 January 2011 in Addis Ababa. 
It embodies the principles articulated by the AU Member States to bring about a public service of good governance, professionalism, integrity, ethical and moral conduct, and responsiveness to the needs of the people as well as effective, efficient and responsible use of public resources. – SAnews.gov.za
