The U.S. Agency for International Development (USAID) has awarded the American University in Kosovo Foundation Inc, a grant to implement the Transformational Leadership Program-Public Service Courses.
The goal of the PPDL Certificate Program will be to assist the people and Government of Kosovo in increasing public policy development and leadership capacity at both central and municipal levels. Many of Kosovo’s young governmental institutions lack sufficient personnel with critical advanced skills for evidence-based policy development, decision-making, and professional leadership. There is also a need for addressing the shortage of analytical skills that impact the country’s most pressing social and economic conditions. The PPDL program is primarily targeted at early to mid-career government employees, aiming to build cohorts of comparably trained individuals to improve Kosovo’s governmental institutions and drive positive change.
Over a three-year period RIT Kosovo™ (A.U.K) will provide PPDL training to as many as 1,000 civil servants.
