Building sustainable training capacity

Increasing the number and quality of expert trainers, facilitators and resource persons in the region, is a fundamental step towards sustainable capacity building. The AFROSAI-E Training-of-Trainers initiative, implemented with the support of the Swedish National Audit Office, is a direct response to achieving this goal.

The first phase of the ToT programme included two workshops that were held in March and August 2019 respectively. The aim of the first phase was to strengthen the capacity of the Secretariat Technical Managers and a pool of regional subject matter experts to develop innovative and high-impact training programmes. The training focused among other things, on instructional design, training methodology and facilitation skills.

The next phase of the initiative will focus on training regional champions as expert facilitators to strengthen the capacity of SAIs’ internal training functions.
