Head SAF Centre For Leadership Development (CLD ) SAFTI Military Institute

Welcome to the SAF' Centre for Leadership Development homepage. CLD's mission is to strengthen leadership of the SAF. It does so through monitoring the status of leadership and the effectiveness of leadership development efforts across the SAF, and reviews how leadership development can adequately address the SAF's needs.

CLD's work targets three levels of leadership:
(1) Junior Leadership (pre-CSC and junior WOSPEC and ME roles);
(2) Middle Leadership (immediately after CSC and those in senior WOME roles); and
(3) Senior Leadership (those in organisational level roles with high stewardship responsibilities to think ahead and decide on organisational-wide issues).

To Effective Leaders, Cohesive Units and a Steadfast SAF!
