Foundation Programme in Leadership and Management
This programme will provide senior and middle managers with the fundamental knowledge and skills on academic leadership and management, strategy and operations in higher education institutions.
The Higher Education Leadership and Management (HELM) programme, offered since 2002, focuses on identifying and responding to the leadership and management development needs in South African universities. HELM’s mission is to explore and create relevant and cutting edge solutions that address organisational and individual capacity needs in universities. HELM is a strategic partnership between Universities South Africa (USAf) and the Department of Higher Education and Training (DHET). The overarching objective is to ensure that the higher education system is endowed with leaders and managers who will be able to drive their institutions towards a preferred future in an effective and efficient manner. To this end, it will focus on identifying and responding to the leadership and management development needs in the higher education sector.
