Author:Chambers, R.J.H.ISNI
Periodical:Journal of Local Administration Overseas
Geographic term:Kenya
Subject:civil service training
Abstract:The techniques of case study selection and presentation that have been evolved at the Kenya Institute of Administration were developed as an attempt to provide the training required by a particular situation. End 1962 there were two six-months courses in public administration under training. One consisted of 22 officers with an average age of 30, an average educational level of a little below Cambridge School Certificate, and several years' field experience. Their great needs were to speed up their reading and handling of paper-work and to learn to think and make decisions at a policy level. The other course, of 20 officers, consisted of recent graduates, with an average of 26, most of them with Arts degrees from Makerere College, and with their practical administrative experience limited to five months as district officers in the fields Follow two instances of case studies, 'Kariuki's Complaint' and 'The resettlement of Kenya Africans at Mpande', with a description of the procedure of the training.
