KSG to unveil another senior programme

The team that validated the developed National Leadership Development Programme curriculum led by Dr. Leah Munyao (seated 4th left).

The School has developed a National Leadership Development Programme (NLDP), which is a sequel to the Strategic Leadership Development Programme (SLDP). This is a high level programme that is committed to addressing policy challenges facing top leaders in the public service. A comprehensive curriculum, under the auspices of the Centre for Leadership and Policy, has been developed and validated.

Although the programme has been in the offing for close to a year, it was crystallized at the School’s Embu Campus, mid this month. The programme was validated with participation of officials drawn from Meru, Embu, Tharaka Nithi and Kirinyaga counties.
The NLDP targets Cabinet Secretaries, Principal Secretaries, SLDP alumni, Governors and their Deputies, Chief Executive Committee Members, Chief Officers and Directors in both the National and County governments.

The programme’s establishment follows the need to cater for senior executive leaders, most of who have gone through the SLDP, which at the moment is the senior most programme at the School. The faculty members, who were involved in developing the curriculum, include the Director Academic Affairs, Dr. Leah Munyao, Director Learning and Development, Dr. Nura Mohamed, the Head of the Centre for Leadership and Policy, Mr. Humphrey Mokaya, and the Head of Business Development Ms. Lynnette Otwori.

Other KSG dons who were involved include Ms. Rachel Ngesa, Mr. Patrick Gachagua, and Ms. Hellen Magolo with the aid of Ms. Sarah Bukachi who was the Program Assistant. The School plans to roll out this programme before the end of the year.
