With a heart to potently empower state leadership and policy makers, the National Training Academy (NTA) is an independent institution focused on preparing and equipping trainees to become transformative leaders in various disciplines, while providing them with the skill set to envision positive change and lead the path to a better future for the country.
As a catalyst of innovation and holistic transformation, NTA also plays a vital role in facilitating sustainable stakeholder initiatives to accommodate the latest economic, technological and global environmental changes. Ultimately, it is a reformative driving force, unlocking the potential of promising leaders across the nation, as it imparts comprehensive understanding of the challenges and opportunities facing Egypt and the entire African continent.
NTA started with an encounter at one of the youth conferences held for collective brainstorming and open dialogue. A compelling dream was shared by a group of young promising leaders-to-be, aligning with the vision of the President of Egypt.
It was the Presidential Leadership Program (PLP) that brought together various youth from different governorates with different backgrounds to voice their hopes and recommendations. Despite their differences, they shared a single, uncompromising dream; to contribute to the welfare of their country and serve their people. When they shared their passion and willingness to participate in leadership positions in the country, H.E. AbdelFattah ElSisi presented the National Training Academy as a resolution to this vital discourse., setting the mandate for the academy to bridge the gap for such promising leaders-to-be.
After levels of assessment and interviews were conducted to select potential leaders, the Presidential Leadership School (PLS) invited Egyptian and African youth to enroll in the Executive Presidential Leadership Program (EPLP) and the African Presidential Leadership Program (APLP). Following that, the State Leadership School (SLS) launched with a vision to stimulate real transformation in the full body of the Egyptian state and government.
The reach of NTA is growing day by day, as more governmental and state institutions are taking part in NTA’s transformational journey and keep coming back for more change agents to transform. The vision is to steadily but surely keep moving towards achieving new heights in a way that is tangible and truly impactful to our society.
We believe that human capital is the most abundant wealth of countries, that human beings are the most precious possessions of all, and that the renaissance of nations and civilizations can only be built with the efforts and minds of its people.
In light of the economic, technological and global environmental changes and the urgent need of expertise to work and compete internationally, we strive to train and qualify the leaders of the future.
To our youth, dream and hold on to your dreams for they are the hope for a brighter tomorrow. Forget despair and remove it from the dictionary of your lives, for every challenge is a step to success.
