Several members of the To'abaita Authority for Research and Development (TARD) at the University of the South Pacific (USP) in Suva will attend a free 6 weeks training in leadership concepts and skills, which will begin today afternoon.

This unique free leadership course is coordinated by the University's Pacific Institute of Advanced Studies in Development and Governance (PIAS-DG) Leadership Program in conjunction with the USP Students' Association, Westpac Bank and Vodafone Fiji Ltd.

The leadership training program is over a six (6) week period, offering six basic concepts and skills in leadership. The first of the six - forty minutes session begins today 18 August from 3-4pm at the Faculty of Business Economics Building at USP. Repeat sessions on each of the six topics will be held every Saturday preceding Friday.

The program aims to help students in self development and personal growth, increased career opportunities, develop greater cooperation and communication skills among the diverse student, staff and working community as well become more reflective, critical and questioning when dealing with various issues - be it study, work or life related. All students, irrespective of their study program and year, including undergraduate and postgraduate levels will have a chance to train and challenge leadership concepts and skills. The program is expected to be completed in mid October.

Students who participate in the free leadership training program will have a chance to win great incentive prizes including a $500 Westpac Bank account and Vodafone valued at $200 as well as receive a Certificate of Attendance and Completion from the University's Pacific Institute of Advanced Studies in Development and Governance (PIAS-DG).
