SALGA rolls-out Integrated Councillor Induction Programme nationwide

Posted: 07 September 2016


Following the 2016 municipal elections, SALGA is preparing incoming Councillors in the new term of local government to govern and lead South Africa.

After every municipal election a nationwide programme of councilor induction is undertaken. As the voice and the representative of local government, it is SALGA’s role to co-ordinate and develop such a programme, and this year is no different.

This year, this programme has assumed a new name called Integrated Councillor Induction Programme (ICIP). The ICIP caters for newly elected and returning Councillors.

Newly elected councilors will undergo contact sessions arranged over five consecutive days to orientate them on their roles and responsibilities while returning councilors will be taken through a refresher induction which is offered with the option of delivering it through contact sessions or over an e-learning platform.

This week marks the rollout of ICIP nationwide, with SALGA’s Provincial Offices taking the lead. Proudly brought by SALGA, in partnership with the Department of Corporative Governance and Traditional Affairs (CoGTA), the National Treasury (NT), the National School of Government (NSG) and the Local Government Sector Education and Training Authority (LGSETA), the ICIP comes as part of SALGA’s Transition Management Strategy with the aim of building good governance and to professionalise the sector.

Among others, the revamped 2016 ICIP has the following features:

  • It is an accredited LGSETA programme, whereby an NQF Level 3 & 5 certificate of competence will be awarded to a councillor upon successful completion;
  • Twinning of facilitators is envisaged, ensuring a blend of NQF aligned theory and local government experienced facilitators are assigned to train councillors.

As part of SALGA’s role to transform local government, so as to fulfil its developmental mandate, it is our responsibility to ensure that the newly elected councillors are equipped with a “general understanding” of their functions and responsibilities once they are inaugurated within their respective Councils.

With the ICIP, SALGA hopes to harvest and inspire competent councils that are motivated to carry the interest of the communities on their shoulders.
