A Report on Education and Training in the International Council on Archives' Africa Programme
Lowry, James
Education for Information, v33 n2 p107-119 2017
In 2015, the International Council on Archives launched its Africa Programme (2015-2020) in order to coordinate its support for African archives and archivists. The Programme is focused on two strategic priorities: advocacy and education and training. This article examines the education and training component of the Programme. It begins by describing the development of the Programme and the identification of education and training as a priority. The article then outlines the education and training initiatives in the "Africa Strategy" and "Work Plan"--the documents that guide the work of the Africa Programme. The article reports on progress against these initiatives in the first year of the Programme. Finally, the article suggests next steps in the delivery of these initiatives.
