Learning and Capacity Development

CORAT Africa courses reflect our commitment to equip churches and church related organizations in management, organizational development, management of development programmes and projects, hospitals, health institutions and educational institutions.

For over 41 years, CORAT Africa courses have attracted a high number of Church leaders and managers who desire to acquire and upgrade their skills in Management.

CORAT Africa has been training to meet management and leadership needs of Churches and  Church-related organizations and NGO’s in Africa since 1975.

In 2017, CORAT Africa plans to run in-country, tailor made and regional courses, all founded on Christian values of integrity, stewardship and accountability.In-country courses are run at the CORAT Africa Management Development Centre (CMDC) located on Bogani East Road, Lang’ata, Nairobi Kenya while the regional courses will run at different locations as indicated below.

The Training Programme is divided into three categories;

i) Pan African Residential Courses

These are aimed at equipping leaders of churches and church-based organizations with good management skills.These courses are conducted at the CORAT Africa Management and Development Centre (CMDC) facility.

ii) Tailor-Made Courses (In-Country Courses)

We also facilitate Tailor-Made (In-Country Courses) which are clients determined .The topics and duration depends on the clients’ needs. Its advantage is, it reaches more participants in a given location, hence more cost effective.
