Japhet Hasunga describes the functions, course offerings, instructional procedures and training evaluations conducted by the Tanzania Public Service College, which was formed in 2000 when the government amalgamated two older training institutions. He discusses the short-term and long-term courses provided and reports that training is about equally split between the public service and the private sector. He says private-sector training is funded by employers and other sponsors. Some long-term trainees are sent to other countries for advanced education. The college collaborates with training institutions in other countries as well. He says that the public and many civil servants still do not understand the importance of civil service reform even though its main objective is to improve service delivery. He points out that training is hampered by both the lack of funds and inadequate facilities.
