The Administrative Staff College of Nigeria (ASCON) was established through Decree No. 39 of 1973 (now ASCON Act. Cap. 6 Vol. LFN 1990) with a tripod mandate to provide Training, Research and Consultancy services to organisations in all sectors of the economy.

Organizational survival and continuous growth is predicated on the capacity to consistently bring appropriate knowledge, skills and attitudes (KSA) to bear in the performance of daily tasks, proactively strategize and utilize environmental opportunities while minimizing the risks thrown up by a highly challenging environment.  ASCON, recognizes that learning and development must meet the needs of organisations driving development initiatives in all sectors of the economy, giving due regard to the organic relationship between government development initiatives and the competences of managers of these initiatives for the achievement of expected results.

From a humble beginning in 1973, the College has become an Institution of repute not only in Nigeria and the West African Sub-Region but in the entire African Continent. The journey which started in 1973 has seen the College undergoing systemic reforms and rebranding in order to maintain its market niche through continuous re-alignment of departments, review of its programmes and courses, and building of strategic partnerships and collaborations within and outside the shores of Nigeria. 

Our value preposition speaks for itself:
