While the training curriculum is extensive and need-based, the pedagogy is equally diverse and interactive.

The faculty comprises carefully chosen practitioners from across the Civil Services in India with distinctive professional accomplishments, leading academics and eminent visitors. They are scholar-practitioners with the responsibility to asses training needs, design curriculum and identify pedagogy and deliver programmes.

The Academy is unique in its ability to draw out specialists from the non-government and private sectors in addition to those from leading global institutions to supplement the efforts of the in-house faculty. As a result, it has emerged as a hub for learning and exchange of ideas from within and outside the Government.

The Academy has distinguished alumni. They include Vice-Presidents, Cabinet Ministers, Governors, Heads of the Civil Services at the Union and the States, Ambassadors, Police Chiefs, environment and forest conservationists and others, who without much public visibility for fanfare, are engaged in the task of delivering the vision of’ an inclusive and developed India’ with unflinching commitment and absolute dedication.
