Tuesday, May 24, 2016– The Training Division of the Ministry of the Public Service, Information and Broadcasting, currently operates two training rooms, one with a seating capacity of fifteen (15), and the other with a seating capacity of twenty-five (25).
The spatial constraints have restricted the number of people that can be trained at any given time, thereby resulting in the sub-optimal use of allocated resources.
The absence of break-out rooms and videoconferencing technology have also affected the quality of training being offered.
In order to address these short comings, the Ministry of the Public Service, Information and Broadcasting will formally launch the Public Service Training Institute (PSTI) on Wednesday, May 24, 2016 at 10:00am. The PSTI is located in the former Spinners building at Union.
Among the key strategic objectives of the Public Service Training Institute are the adoption of a competency-based approach to human resource training and development in the public service, in keeping with objectives identified for training in the Ministry of the Public Service, Information and Broadcasting’s Strategic Plan for 2014-2017; formulation of customized learning and development programmes to meet the deficiencies identified by the Learning Needs Assessment; and building capacity within government ministries/department by strengthening human resources in accordance with service delivery and policy and programme objectives.
