Purpose

To build the capacity of Anti-corruption practitioners within the Public Service.  Anti- corruption practitioners will use critical thinking and reflection to customise an anti- corruption strategy at operational level for a public sector component. In addition, the design and development of the customised anti-corruption programmes and implementation plans will take into account the transformation agenda and strategic objectives of the Public Service.

Target Group

The course is aimed at the anti-corruption practitioner who is the person that takes overall responsibility for co-ordinating the implementation of the various elements of the relevant anti-corruption programme strategy. It is therefore important for anti- corruption practitioners to be able to analyse and interpret the current National Anti- corruption Regulatory Framework and to contextualise these in a specific government component. Anti-corruption practitioners are furthermore required to design and develop implementation plans to monitor implementation of programme elements and to evaluate the impact of the proposed departmental/organisational component’s Anti- corruption programme.

Learning Outcomes

By the end of this course participants should be able to:

  • Analyse and interpret the Public Service Anti-corruption Strategy and other relevant policy directives;
  • Contextualise the National Anti-corruption Framework in a specific public departmental/organisational component;
