NAIROBI (KENYA), 12 July 2022 — The CIG delegation led by Mr Wu Wei Neng, Executive Director, CIG and Mr Kenneth Sim, Dean, CAG has successfully delivered training as part of segment three of the Public Service Emerging Leaders Fellowship (PSELF) programme, held from 4-8 July 2022 at the Methodist Resort and Conference Centre in Nairobi, Kenya.

The curriculum for this segment emphasised the core skills that young public service leaders would require, such as in policy design, policy writing and programme implementation.

Adopting a blended approach, CIG incorporated online asynchronous content to enable self-paced learning and to keep the fellows engaged prior to the residential segment.
In addition to more traditional lectures, CIG applied other learning modalities such as role play and policy gaming. These activities enabled the fellows to immerse themselves in scenarios that closely mirrored the process of policy design and strategic planning, and to apply important concepts related to these core areas of work in a safe and supportive environment.

The fellows greatly enjoyed the new models of learning and affirmed its effectiveness:
"The practical simulation of strategic planning made it easy to understand the process of strategic planning."
