The Civil Services Academy was established in 1948 for the training of fresh entrants to the Pakistan Administrative Service (PAS). Since then, it has undergone many changes in organizational structure and location. After the Administrative Reforms of 1973, it was decided to organize a Common Training Programme (CTP) for all fresh entrants to various Central Superior Services (CSS) (renamed as Occupational Groups)
Presently, the Academy has one campus at Walton, which is used exclusively for the Common Training Programme (CTP). The other Campus, which is located at Shahrah-e-Quaid-i-Azam, is used for the Specialized Training Programme (STP) of the District Management Group (DMG) probationers.
  Civil Services Academy – Walton Campus, Lahore  

The aim of the CTP is to transform the college students into civil servants, to enable them to perform their duties judiciously, effectively and economically in accordance with law.


This fundamental rigorous training is imparted with the objective: -

  • To promote harmony amongst the probationary officers belonging to various regions and federal service of Pakistan.
  • To facilitate an understanding of the social, political, economic, administrative and national security related issues that confront Pakistan.
  • To equip the probationary officers with basic knowledge and administrative skills required for their future responsibilities.
  • To sensitize the probationary officers about the need for integrity, discipline and effectiveness for optimization of public value and providing improved service delivery to the people particularly the poor and the disadvantaged.
  • To enable the probationary officers to play their role as future leaders within the Civil Service of Pakistan.
The entire batch is divided into four Academic Groups. The training methodology and techniques include lectures, seminars/ panel discussions, case studies, workshops, class presentations, syndicate work, book speaking, country study tour and Army attachment. Special emphasis is laid to improve the communication and information technology skills. Physical training, sports, cultural and literary activities also find their due share among the academics.
