Decree on the establishment of NASLA

In order to provide enough quality human resources needed in RLAs and thus continue the implementation of the public policy of decentralization, the Head of State, through Decree of 2 March 2020, created the National School of Local Administration (NASLA), a specific school, for training and perfecting local administration personnel.


The Head of State, known and appreciated by his compatriots for his considerable ability to listen to them, is fully aware that accelerating decentralization constitutes a strong expectation among the people in order to achieve shared social progress.

Mon passage à la Nasla a été l'un des plus marquants au vu des souvenirs que j'ai gardés : un climat jovial et détendu entre apprenants et encadreurs, une oreille attentive à chaque fois qu'on se sentait buté à une difficulté, des cours assez traités et bien présentes pour les travailleurs que nous sommes, mais surtout le caractère Bilingue de chaque enseignant. S'il fallait revenir, c'est avec enthousiasme que je le ferai.
I chose NASLA because of its prestigious nature and equally because of the efforts and strategies the school implements to provide appropriate trainings to municipal staff! I leave satisfied! NASLA is a great opportunity for all those who wish undergo training, given that, the school promotes the role of secretary general. If I were permitted to return to NASLA as a student, my career choice will be a territorial development specialist! It is a profession which puts you at the heart of the decentralization process. I advise all those who wish to undergo training at NASLA to choose to be on campus in order to make the most of the training content. On-line training is difficult, especially for those who work, given that schedules do not always take it into consideration.

Being part of the first graduating batch of NASLA, I feel, on this day professionally competent in the management of local affairs. My sojourn at NASLA has given me the opportunity to effectively contribute to the putting in place of policies governing decentralization. I call on council staff to take advantage of the different Training Programmes offered by NASLA so they can become more professionally equipped in order to boost efficiency in their place of work. I solicit local elected officials to collaborate with NASLA in order to better guide NASLA on options and professions which have a direct impact within their RLAs.

I chose NASLA because of the desire to boost my skills, through its In-service Training Programme for senior Executives of Local Administration and Social Policies. I chose this field because the Executive gives me the opportunity to engage in decision making and be part of strategic meetings. One striking aspect of NASLA is the quality of their teaching modules and the sharing of experiences. I would advise anyone who wishes to undergo training at NASLA, to choose the short-term Specific Training Programme or the Diploma Initial Training Programme.
