Final evaluation report of the Continuous Professional Development / Training of Trainers (CPD/ToT) programme that was developed and implemented in 2018 / 2019 by EIFL in partnership with the Kenya National Library Service (KNLS), which manages Kenya’s network of 62 public libraries.
The report provides an overview of the CPD/ToT programme and its results and impact in public libraries in Kenya. The programme aimed to build subject knowledge and training skills of a corps of KNLS staff, who could then be deployed to provide training within the KNLS network. The aim was to ensure that KNLS had sufficient training capacity to provide ongoing training in future.
Thirty KNLS staff members selected to become trainers underwent intensive training over a period of 18 months. The curriculum covered topics and skills critical to developing, managing and sustaining modern library services, and training and facilitation skills. The final evaluation was completed in 2020.
