The GCPP Programme is primarily designed for citizens who want to take an active, more informed role in public affairs. It is open to qualifying individuals from any sector, discipline or occupation. The programme meets the needs of those engaging in, or seeking to engage in a broad range of professions ranging from the media, civil service, non-government organisations, law, advocacy, regulatory affairs and international business.

Individuals and organisations engaged in consulting, social services, public health, economic development and international development will benefit from this programme.

A small number of junior studentships is available for promising undergraduate students who can add value to the class.
