Selection Criteria


Due to the intensity of the programme applicants need to demonstrate a high level of personal motivation, stamina and initiative. In addition applicants must show a willingness to work in a group situation and an ability to tolerate and manage pressure and conflict and are assessed with this in mind.

Age and work experience

Applicants should be at least 25 years old and have a minimum of 3 years’ relevant work experience. A graduate level qualification or NQF level 7 equivalent is also required. Applicants without a degree may be considered through the Recognition of Prior Learning (RPL) route

Essays and References

Applicants are required to submit three short essays. Additionally two confidential reference reports must be completed by individuals who know the applicant in a professional context and who are not close family members.


May be required. Applicants will be informed.

Completion of the Individual Action Learning Assignment requires applications to do research and implement actions in an organisation.  It is therefore preferable that applicants are employed, either within an organisation or self-employed.  Applicants who are not employed but are accepted on the programme, will be responsible for finding an organisation that will allow them to do research within the organisation and implement solutions in the organisation.

Ethical clearance is required from the organisation being researched.
