CPST Strategic Plan
The CPST Strategic Plan 2013–2017 (Revised) is anchored on the Capacity Building and Training Pillar of the Parliamentary Service Commission Strategic Plan. It provides the blueprint on the key issues that the CPST needs to focus on.
Trainers of the CPST are drawn from current and former Senior Staff of Parliament; the Academia and other professionals from key public and private sector institutions. Some of our trainers are also former Members of Parliament who served as chairpersons and members of various committees or as commissioners. All our trainers undergo Training of Trainers Courses to enhance their skills in training adult learners. The CPST uses a unique training model also known as "The CPST Way of Training".
