Centre for Capacity Training and Development (CCTD) is a management training organisation which focuses on management training for employees of business organisations, in both the public and private sector. Capacity training and development has become the standard way to develop employees (both management staff and non – management staff) for most organisations.
The principle of capacity training and development is based upon the delivery of training that addresses and offers practical ways of improving efficiency to enhance daily performance in business organisations. CCTD was formed as a result of practical concerns about the lack of capacity training and development, or continuous professional development, raised by business organisations including the public sector.
As organisations strive to increase productivity of their staff, performance management has become the benchmark of all organisations that strive to meet their set corporate objectives. But how to achieve this has become a daunting task, and this has remained one of the most complex issues to address in human resource.
CCTD believes the answer to these concerns lies in the correct development of human resources. In addressing the issue of human resource, two factors must be considered; namely, creativity and productivity. These two, or rather the lack of them, have become the bane of many organisations locally and globally. Therefore the thrust of CCTD’s capacity development programmes is to inspire creativity and to increase productivity in all types of business organisation.
At CCTD, we pride ourselves by employing facilitators/consultants whose experience spans many years. They will equip you to become the visionary manager or leader your career, your organisation, and the world economy demand. Collectively, they have proven dominance in their business expertise to create new knowledge and enduring concepts that shape the practice of management.
Individually, they will give you insights from their own practice-based experience; the result is a team of consultants who will introduce you to numerous perspectives while at the same time challenging your thinking on many levels. We use modern methods in the delivery of our programmes. As a team, we try very hard to set the standards of excellence in everything we do and our training programmes are designed to be highly interactive to match the needs of all our participants.
We believe that making the transition from accomplished functional specialist to successful manager in today’s world economy takes a lot more than strong management skills; it requires a fundamental shift in thinking.
To be highly effective, senior managers, CEOs and managers must understand the essence of the business they manage and be able to lead the business holistically – understanding how key decisions will impact each business function. This transition can take years to complete.
At CCTD, our training programmes are well designed and structured to enhance and smooth participants’ personal and professional transformation. After going through our management training programmes, participants will go back to their various organisations thinking and acting differently, with better business judgement and self-confidence to manage or lead through periods of growth and difficulties therefore sustaining their organisations competitive advantage.
CCTD offers an extensive set of management Development programmes that are designed and delivered to help shape your future and the future of your organisation. We are committed to the provision and facilitation of programmes that will have positive impact on participants and their organisation. Our bespoke management development programmes are based on current best business practice and thinking.
Our training centre is right on the spot to provide strategic training interventions to close the gap in staff performance deficiencies and to scale-up existing knowledge to improve performance at optimum level.
You will emerge from CCTD with self-confidence and strategic skills to take on greater cross- functional responsibilities in your organisation, whether it is through training programmes delivered at our centre or through our on-site programmes, you will become the visionary CEO, Director, Manager or the supervisor etc the business world will need.
CCTD’s unique Performance Management Training approach is based on measuring strategic, operational and organisational interventions that helps private and public service organisations to execute their missions and objectives through the establishment of strategy for evaluating project and programme performance to:
- Link strategic goals, objectives and outcomes to project milestones, tasks and activities, providing a clear line of sight between mission objectives and operational performance.
- Review programmes continuously through credible performance data to align each new project task and activity with programme and strategic goals.
- Generate and analyse real-time performance data to enable organisations to make programme adjustments quickly.
- Implement corrective actions and monitor expended resources to deliver planned outcomes and support strategic goals.
Allocate resources appropriately across the enterprise to achieve optimal performance against the organisational mandates
CCTD’s performance strategy makes it possible for private and public service organisations to:
Directly link programmes to missions
Evaluate programmes based on mission objectives
Prioritise project investment programmes based on performance capabilities required
Leverage existing assets across the enterprise to improve performance and respond effectively to changing conditions

Please note that some of these organisations might not be represented in your country but you may do well to apply to those that are available, or any similar ones not stated above.
As mentioned earlier, most of these agencies could be sponsoring projects right in your country and perhaps in your ministry, NGO or similar organisation. You need to look out for them and apply through them. There may be funds budgeted for training in your ministry or organisation. Please check with the various project directors and the Human Resource Development Managers.
Lastly, be reasonable in demanding the daily subsistence allowance or per diem allowance. When the amount is too high, the donor / sponsor may decline the whole sponsorship on the grounds that it is too expensive. Well, if you are sure that they can pay whatever amount you quote, then there is no problem.
We wish you the best of luck in your search for funds to train at CCTD.
