Guide of the TAPS process
JPA shortlists and selects eligible JPA scholars and will notify them of their selection to TAPS. Upon confirmation, scholars will be known as TAPS Associates.
Scholars will be introduced to TAPS and undergo psychometric assessment, customised development training, familiarise themselves with the public service and sign the contract of service.
TAPS Associates will be placed at Host Organisations for two 1-year stints. They will be introduced to their mentors at their Host Organisations and commence to work and participate in special projects.
