Title:The East African staff college
Author:Millar-Craig, H.
Periodical:Journal of Administration Overseas
Geographic term:East Africa
Subject:civil service training
Abstract:The independence of Tanganyika, Uganda and Kenya meant that the pace of Africanisation of senior posts, especially in the public service, was very considerably speeded up. The problem how to provide high level training for senior civil servants, has been tackled through the establishment of the East African Staff College. The recommendation of the first Director of the College to hold courses in each of the three countries in turn was accepted by the three Governments, and the college has continued to operate on a peripatetic basis up to the present time. How the college came into being and developed its training system without a constitution, without budget, and with only minimal staff, and the difficulties faced during its successful if unorthodox life so far, is described in the article.
