The Cadet programme is designed for new recruits or intakes into the Public Service of Guyana.  It is intended to make them the catalyst for positive change within the executive arm of the government.  The programme has a classroom component and provision for work attachment.  It’s duration is for a period of one (1) year.

The aim of the Cadet programme is to provide a framework by which graduate high school students with diverse academic background may be assigned to Ministries, Departments, Regional Offices and other agencies within the Public Service where their educational experience can be enhanced through practical work attachments.  Formative and Summative evaluations of the Cadet’s performance will be undertaken and meetings will be organized with the Cadets to provide feedback.

Upon successful completion of the programme, Cadets will be issued with a certificate of attendance.
