Implementation of KILT’s initiatives is backed by the principals, assisted by volunteers and supported by donor funding.
GIBS leadership development programme
Launched in 2018, the Gordon Institute of Business Science (GIBS) leadership and management programme was highly valued by principals.
Delegates rated the course as excellent in terms of value, interest, relevance and enjoyment. Most said the course helped them interrogate themselves, identify their strengths and areas for improvement, and become more future-minded.
The 2019 programme reinforced the theoretical foundations already in place, and continued with greater emphasis on on-the-job application. It also aimed to strengthen the community of peers in which delegates are able to develop professionally.
We are significantly increasing our investment in Leadership Development in 2020 – until now it has been less than 1% of our overall investment. The 2020 LDP will be delivered as credit-bearing and custom-made GIBS-KILT programme. This will involve more time commitment by those taking it, but it has been a consistent request from the delegates and will provide a greater Value Proposition. All KILT-funded schools will participate through enrolling 2 to 3 members of their management teams.
“A very powerful course. The GIBS programme is interesting and diverse; it is informative and inspiring, and gives us a sense of direction. Very uplifting!” “An eye opener, empowering. Will start implementing these amazing ideas.”
