The National Treasury TOPP Programme

TOPP is a programme which provides an avenue for prospective Chartered Accountants to receive training without going through the audit firm. TOPP has been a feature in the private sector for some time, but has just recently been adopted by the public sector. National Treasury is the first government department to introduce this programme. The first cohort of learners started in January 2008.

The TOPP programme will not only re-enforce prior academic education, but will also help trainees to develop business acumen, life skills, professional and ethical values.

Fast Track your career...

Career development forms an integral part of the NTGDP, as an intern or a TOPP trainee, we develop training plans to ensure that empower you to fast-track your career. All interns undergo a number of in-house training programmes to prepare them for the transition into the world of work. These afford the interns with the skills to become competent and credible employees.

The key output of the TOPP programme will contribute significantly to the National Treasury’s ability to attract and retain key finance and ccounting professionals within the department and the broader public sector as a whole.

Only 10 graduates a year get selected into the programme.
