ABOUT THIS COURSE
The training course “Sensitization of elected officials and executives of Local Authorities to Territorial Coaching” is supported by United Cities and Local Governments of Africa (UCLG Africa) and its African Academy of Local Authorities (ALGA). It is designed to meet the needs of African local authorities for sustainable development through the synergy of actors.
The pedagogical approach of this training is based on the asynchronous distance learning model and on the opportunities offered by the digitalization of training. In addition to the contributions of senior coach-trainers, this training is also based on practical exercises, presentation of the tools of Territorial Coaching and its approaches, tests and testimonies of territorial actors…
It integrates skills in coaching organizations and groups and skills provided by territorial engineering. It aims to train the elected officials and the actors of the Territorial Communities of Africa so that they can familiarize themselves with the job of the Territorial Coach, its contributions for a good governance of the territories and to apprehend the global stakes of the territorial dynamics.
Through the planned modules, the aim is to accompany a real transformation and an integration of the actors in the processes of change. The involvement of the elected officials and the actors of the Territorial Collectivity is a determining factor since it must support the development of inclusive approaches allowing to create the conditions of confidence to make the territorial actors, the real engines of the change.
The role of the Territorial Coach at this level is to encourage exchanges, to impulse a synergy and to create a favorable climate by putting forward specific, concrete and operational tools.
The Course is animated by experts who have supported this program since its inception.
The course is available in two languages: English and French.
