The participants from Sierra Leone and Liberia have been learning competent training management and facilitation skills for Ethical Leadership for Quality Productivity Improvement (EL/QPI) course. The course consists of application of effective and efficient training methodology and facilitation skills. And the participants are trained to become the future trainees of EL/QPI.
The training has been held from February 11 to 22, 2013 at the Civil Service Training Centre (CSTC).
Ms. Nancy Yelpode, an adjunct trainer from Ministry of Education, who facilitated a lecture on February 13th, said; "Participants showed keen interest. I delivered a lecture on ‘Lesson Plan'. It is not a common topic so that participants needed undivided attention. I used class activities and case studies to bring back home the importance of ‘Lesson Plan' and how to prepare one."
It is the second in the series of Training of Trainers courses to be organized by the CSTC for civil servants in the West African sub-region. The course is developed based on the need to equip the past EL/QPI participants with competent training management and facilitation skills to implement and facilitate EL/QPI in their respective country.
Each participant is to create an Action Plan and to demonstrate facilitation of a simulation session at the end of the training. These activities will be conducted in the new CSTC building, which is now under construction with the support of JICA. The participants will use of the ground floor of the new building. The completion of the building is scheduled on the end of March.
