Inivitation to WLDP/NLDP event in Muscat, Oman
5 March 2014
The Arab Region takes pleasure to invite you to attend a WAGGGS Leadership Development Programme (WLDP) that will be held in Oman.
This is 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 is extending 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 will also be introduced to the National Leadership Development Programme (NLDP) aimed at developing skills to deliver leadership training at a national level. We will take this opportunity to also decide on a development plan on National level and agree on ways of work for its implementation.
We therefore recommend the Arab Region MOs to send as part of their delegation high level trainers to be actively involved in this important piece of work.
