The Institute of National Transformation (INT) course was formed to create awareness of the prospects for national transformation, and to highlight the role of citizens in the process. This awareness has over the years created a desire in some graduates to get more engaged in the governance sphere. Those who have climbed higher on the Governance Mountain have found that there are competencies that are a prerequisite for successful ascent. The INT Track 2 Governance Sphere Training Programme is designed to address that need.
The 12-module course will be delivered over a period of one year with three-hour engagements on a weekly basis early on Saturday mornings. Each module consists of 7 Units derived from 7 tracks:
Each module consists of a unit from one of the 7 tracks. Two units will be covered each week; the fourth week will be dedicated to practicals. Each participant is required to identify a service project that they will carry out throughout the duration of the course. The project could be one that they are already doing or one they must start at the beginning of the course. In addition, each participant shall nominate at least 2 youths that they will mentor alongside throughout the course. Field trips and a recommended movie to watch will be part of the practicals.
Assessments will be based on attendance and on the progress of the projects undertaken. There will also be reflective writing assignments.
The course is primarily designed for INT Alumni with a calling to the Governance sphere. This includes those in or who aspire to be in:
In addition, alumni from any of the other spheres that sense a calling to higher levels of leadership in their spheres will find the course beneficial.
