The New Extensionist Learning Kit is a learning resource for individual extension field staff, managers, and lecturers. It is based on the The 'New Extensionist' - Roles, Strategies, and Capacities to Strengthen Extension and Advisory Services, a GFRAS position paper that discusses new capacities for rural advisory services and extension to address the current challenges in agriculture and to contribute better to agricultural innovation. The kit focuses on functional skills and is available for self-directed, face-to-face, or blended learning.

The New Extensionist Learning Kit (NELK) contains 13 modules designed for self-directed, face-to-face, or blended learning and can be a useful tool for (not exclusively) individual extension field staff, managers, lecturers and non-governmental organisations, and other training institutions.
