The CEO Apprenticeship Programme (CAP) is a leadership programme designed to attract experienced Tanzanians both within the public and private sectors to establish peer and CEO networks, and through training, coaching and mentorship prepare them to become future CEOs. Through strategic partnerships and programme sponsors, the main objective of the CAP initiative is to facilitate the succession of CAP graduates into CEO positions over time, thus creating a pipeline of competent, experienced, and visionary leaders in Tanzania.
The CEO Apprenticeship Programme targets professionals who currently report to CEO’s or are on career paths towards becoming future CEOs. Senior executives from within Government, Private Sector and Non-Profit Organizations are eligible to participate within the programme.
The CEO Roundtable of Tanzania (CEOrt) in partnership with Strathmore University Business School (SBS) unveiled the CEO Apprenticeship Programme on 26th August 2019.
