Local Administration Development Program (LADP)
The Local Administration and Development Program (LADP) is the longest running executive management program for elected and appointive local government officials in the Philippines. It is a live-in training program that has been continuously updated to fit the evolving needs of local chief executives and other local executive officials. Some batches also included some DILG personnel.
Started in 1968, it is our flagship course and the source of most of our multi-dimensional learning approaches that enable participants to think out of the box and become better enablers of local development. Since the 1990s, it has been a joint initiative with the Local Government Academy of the Department of the Interior and Local Government (LGA-DILG).
The LADP have already produced 1,642 graduates, composed of local chief executives and other elected officials, department heads and some technical personnel, as well as officials of national government agencies (NGAs) concerned with local governance. Among the distinguished graduates of the LADP are:
