TPSC Admission



Tanzania Public Service College (TPSC) was established in 2000 under the Executive Agencies Act No. 30 of 1997. Its establishment followed demand for public service training facility that resulted from the expanding Government operations and the changing needs of Public Services as well as implementation of the Public Service Reforms. This situation called for a training institution that was autonomous and economically vibrant Public Service College. TPSC functions became more important with the advent of the Public Service Reform Programme (PSRP) whose main aim was to transform the Public Service into an organ that has capacity, systems and culture of offering customer-focused services, and a culture of continuously improving public services. Thus, the establishment of TPSC was seen as a handy facility for lending support to the PSRP in the sphere of training and development of Leadership, Managerial and Administrative capabilities for improved public service delivery.
