Methodology

The programme presents a number of unique features:

  • Integration of theory with application work;
  • In-depth coverage of the full spectrum of competencies for project cycle management as practised in major development institutions; and
  • An interdisciplinary approach that emphasises the interlinkages between rule of law, economic development and social progress.

The programme is composed of three parts. On completion of each part, Part I (distance learning), Part II (face-to-face) and Part III (project development assignment), participants will be required to sit for written tests on the topics covered in each part. Classroom interaction and team work are emphasized in order to prepare the students for effective engagement in the participatory approaches of development work. Individual or group preparation and presentation of a project proposal is a requirement for graduation.

The programme places a premium on participants' proactive participation in classroom discussions and assignments, and incorporates training sessions in interpersonal skills that are indispensable for success in development work.

During the face-to-face component attendance is compulsory.
