knls in partnership with Electronic Information for Libraries (EIFL) has rolled out a capacity building programme/ToT initiative that will support Continuous Professional Development of Public Librarians with the aim of enhancing service delivery in the libraries. The ultimate goal of this initiative is to create a cohort of local trainers who are embedded in institutional CPD system to meet ongoing training needs of library staff across knls network. Twenty (20) trainees have been selected to form the first cohort of knls trainers and will go through 6 training sessions that will run until March 2019.
The first training session on General Training Abilities (ToT) & Mobile Information Literacy (MIL) was held on 12th to 16th March 2018 in Nakuru. The training was facilitated by a team of Trainers and coaches from knls, EIFL, African Library and Information Association and Institution (AfLIA) and Technology & Social Change Group (TASCHA).
