The 20/20 Management Development System (20/20 MDS™) is a totally integrated management and leadership development program at four levels from Graduate Certificate to Masters Degree level (level A to D). All individuals are eligible for any of these courses (subject to evaluation that they have the required learning prequalifications to undertake each course beyond the initial level A). However, participation is also subject to completion of this application form and a discussion with your direct line supervisor about how you will prepare for these courses and what this program will do for both the organisation (in terms of your future contribution) and for you personally. Please therefore answer the questions below as honestly and as fully as you can and take this form very seriously as your participation represents a serious commitment on both your own and the company's part.
