WLDP/NLDP training in Oman
1 June 2014- 8 June 2014
Under the theme "Leaders know the way, go the way, share the way", the Arab Region organized a joint WAGGGS Leadership Development Programme (WLDP) training, and WAGGGS National Leadership Development Programme (NLDP) training, hosted by the Scout and guides of Oman.
The event took place during the period from 1 to 8 June 2014.
It was a unique opportunity to build leadership capacity at an international and national level aiming to develop both leadership and quality guiding in MOs.
In an attempt to promote partnership, the Arab Region extended the invitation to all other four Regions.
Purpose of the Training event
The WLDP provides an opportunity for existing and actively developing leaders to develop their international leadership skills and experiences and provides a constructive and supportive environment for progressive self-development.
The international aspect of the WLDP provides a cross cultural learning experience and builds international friendship and networks. The development is aimed to meet to the needs of the individual and the needs of the member organisation.
Furthermore, the Arab Region participants were also introduced to the National Leadership Development Programme (NLDP) aimed at developing skills to deliver leadership training at a national level. They took this opportunity to also decide on a development plan on National level and agree on ways of work for its implementation.
