Is an action or activity model for reforming an unacceptable present state. It can also mean activities or actions that extent a favorable past. Programmes may be viewed as representing new methods or strategies for delivering a service or conducting professional action.[1] A programme may cut across activity sectors, themes or geographic areas and uses a multidisciplinary approach involving multiple actors. From a training perspective, a programme is a long-term activity consisting of a series of courses during which the leaner is expected to upgrade existing or acquire a specific set of new skills.[2]
