Abstract

PCF4 // The development of leadership skills and competencies among youth leaders and professionals involved in youth development work is a critical component of a sustainable youth development strategy. // CYP recognizes that the provision of adequate opportunities for youth and community leaders to acquire these skills and knowledge has a profound impact on human resource capital of any society and consequentially must add value to the development process. // This paper will therefore briefly explore the historical context of CYP youth development training programmes. It will examine rationale and issues related to the transition from resident based to distance learning. // It will of necessity - // identify the challenges, achievements and lessons learnt // analyze and examine the current challenges and strategies being employed and considered to enhance relevance and upgrade integrity of CYP Training Programmes and // provide an insight on possible strategies for the way forward, including global collaboration with institutions within and without the Commonwealth, facilitating greater access to training material, the transition to VLE based training and the incorporation of a research based component. // Paper ID 436
