3 Underpinning and Objectives of the MIP In 2007, the President stated that: “SAMDI should be the major service provider (in public sector training) including in the mass induction of public servants” The urgency of the MIP was confirmed by the MPSA in her 2007 Budget Vote Speech The intention is to expose new public servants to the core values of public service delivery, Batho Pele and development: To develop and inculcate the Batho Pele ethos of serving; To stimulate a sense of pride in working for the Public Service; To point participants to generic as well as functional skills; and To create an awareness of the challenges of the developmental state.
4 Implementation Challenge and Mechanism Target Audience The estimated number of new public servants at national and provincial level is 100,000 per annum General support staff (salary levels 1-5) - approx. 68,000; Junior and middle managers (salary levels 6-12) - approximately 32,000; and SMS (salary levels 13-16). This group is to be inducted separately. The 100,000 translates into approximately 90 induction training sessions per week across all national and provincial departments Assuming 2/3 of sessions in departments (including Training of Trainers), this still means three outsourced sessions in an average province every week, forever…
5 Implementation Challenge and Mechanism Scale of Induction Programme Situation 1: How we approached the challenge (where we come from) Situation 2: Confronting the challenge (where we are) Situation 3: Meeting the challenge (where we need to be)
6 Implementation Challenge and Mechanism Target Broken Down by Province Level 1-5 Level 6-12
7 Implementation Challenge and Mechanism Modes of Delivery The MIP, like other Academy programmes, will be rolled-out through a partnership model comprising Departmental trainers (Training of Trainers); Sectoral training (e.g. by Education, Health, Defence departments); Private Sector (Outsourced); and Provincial Academies. This approach is in line with Academy strategy, which shifts from Competition to collaboration; Direct provision to facilitation; and Selective offerings to comprehensive or massified delivery. Only suitably qualified trainers will be licensed SAMDI has developed qualification criteria for trainers; Selected trainers have been trained in the use of the new manuals and methodology in an eight-day Training of Trainers Programme; and A total of 500 trainers are being trained for the roll-out of the MIP.

15 Monitoring and Evaluation SAMDI has developed Monitoring and Evaluation instruments to assess implementation progress and impact Feedback will be received from trainees, facilitators and monitors through the Reaction Evaluation Questionnaire, Facilitators Evaluation Form and On-site Monitoring Reports SAMDI’s monitors and provincial implementation teams are being trained on the use of the instruments Reports will be produced quarterly as an early warning mechanism to advise on required interventions for improvement
16 Potential Challenges and Mitigation Steps Implementation of the MIP is contingent on the following factors: Effective core administration for MIP especially in provinces; Availability of adequate financial resources especially printing; and Endorsement by provinces and national departments. The following steps have been taken to ensure delivery Collective and bilateral workshops with provinces and national departments for information and support; The issuing of the Directive by the Minister for Public Service and Administration in March 2008; and SAMDI’s DG communiqué to other DGs and Heads of Departments, and their HR functionaries.
