Leadership and Management in Development - Brighton, United Kingdom
I really enjoyed the programme. It's actualy experience sharing, very educative and motivating, with participants from diverse races.
My experience with IMA at Brighton, UK is memorable. I shared experiences with eight colleagues of six nationalities and became friends. I now have newer skills to handle my job in Nigeria.
I came to participate in a program and ended with receiving an exceptional gift: a voyage to improving and appreciating myself. Many thanks to IMA's experts.
It was fun and educating. I think that now I have changed into a new person interested in leaving and sharing knowledge.
Great opportunity to meet diverse experts.
For me it was a journey of self realisation, the techniques you used were really impressive.
IMA's results-based M&E training was exceptional. Great exercises, great learning!
The best training I've ever attended and would like to have participated on the full 2 weeks M&E course.
A great learning experience and very engaging. It opened my eyes to new ideas and ways of thinking - very motivating.
I recommend IMA's M&E for results 10 day course, it is fantastic.
Social protection training of trainers in Kenya
Evidence from around the world shows that a broader understanding of Social Protection, encompassing universal elements, rather than a poverty focus, ultimately contributes not only to enhancing economic and social well being, but also contributes directly to more cohesive societies. The mindset shift is to move from a benefit approach to one of entitlements as citizens. Last week Silvia Capezzuoli lead on facilitating a week-long WFP-funded training initiative for enhancing social protection in Kenya, with content developed and presented by Development Pathways. This training of trainers (TOT) was the starting point of a WFP-supported Learning and Development programme supporting the Social Protection Secretariat (SPS) core national team to advocate for broader social protection in Kenya. We created an environment where SPS staff felt comfortable with and debated new content. Most importantly, we ensured participants practised delivering actual mini-sessions to familiarise themselves with all materials and skills needed to facilitate the 2-day social protection course themselves as they move forward.
