Review of P4G

In 2021, a review of the Performance for Growth (P4G) Framework was conducted to assess its implementation and delivery with regard to the intended benefits to individuals and the institution. The Review included inputs from stakeholders and participants and following a comprehensive analysis of the feedback an Action Plan to further embed P4G into the institution was developed.

The P4G Review and Action Plan (2022-2024), was approved by UMT in February 2022, at which time they also reaffirmed their endorsement of the principles of the P4G Framework. The Action plan includes system improvements and enhanced training and materials. The plan also features policy revision, and alignment with current and planned University processes, programmes, and initiatives. Progress on activities within the Plan are underway and will continue over the coming cycles.
