The Development Academy of the Philippines (DAP) announces the opening of admission to the Public Management Development Program (PMDP) for 2013.
Inspired by the President’s “Social Contract” and his commitment to lead along the path of “Daang Matuwid,” PMDP will foster careerism and stability in government by producing a corps of public executives with competence, integrity, and commitment. It is an intensive scholarship program that provides comprehensive and multi-modal learning opportunities for public managers.
The program covers three to four months of residential training at DAP Conference Center in Tagaytay City inclusive of a two-week Sensing Journey in a rural community and another three months for Re-Entry Project implementation in the scholars’ respective agencies.
PMDP offers two classes – Senior Executives Class (SEC) and Middle Managers Class (MMC). The SEC is designed for senior government executives who are incumbents or OICs of SG 25 and up positions while the MMC is for high-performing high potential division chiefs of SG 24 positions.
The program will accept applicants who hold a permanent position in government and are not more than 55 years old. They should come from the national line agencies or their attached agencies and should have gained a Very Satisfactory or Outstanding performance rating for the past two years. They should also be clear of administrative and criminal cases, have not gone habitually on leaves and are willing to sign a one-year service contract after completing the program. Furthermore, they should be nominated by the head of agency.
The nominees will undergo a three –stage admission process that includes preliminary screening, examinations and targeted interview. They will be assessed based on the following criteria: managerial and leadership potential, character and commitment to public service, and intellectual and creative capacities.
Nominations will be accepted until October 30, 2012 and the deadline of submission of application requirements is on November 10, 2012.
