The Career System has two tracks:
Track I – for Incumbent SUC Presidents; and
Track II – for Aspiring Leaders.

The Components of the Career System are:
1. Recruitment and Selection – which sources new talent into the public higher education sector and screens applications for entry into the system;
2. The Professional Advancement Program (PAP) – which enhances and updates the competencies of both incumbent SUC leaders and aspiring HEEs; and
3. Career Management – which grants eligibility, tracks individual performance, and identifies placement opportunities for those included in the system.

The activities of the career system are subject to monitoring and evaluation measures that would ensure the long-term sustainability and viability of the reforms introduced through the system.
