How to Set up a PPDP Management Training Programme

Managing an innovative and potentially complex project like a PPDP provides a rich learning opportunity and environment for managers of the project. As they embark on what might be for them as leaders, and their staff, a new model of collaborative training provision in their VTC – including working with new partners (private sector), and developing new curriculum materials for their learners – VTC managers should thoughtfully consider their own learning needs. By focusing on this as a part of their work, they can enhance their own performance as managers in this context and that of the PPDP. This Guide outlines how VTC manager can develop their management competencies through formal and informal learning, through structured reflective practice, and mentoring opportunities.
