Training plan for senior officers

IN AN effort to develop and upskill its officers, the Fiji Corrections Service has developed a training plan for next year.

Corrections spokeswoman Ana Tamani said this was the first time a Training Needs Analysis symposium had been convened to allow senior officers to contribute ideas and map out a career path for subordinates.

"One of the areas that we have always lacked is the training of staff, so this is an opportunity to enable us to come up with a plan and devise a strategy for staff development," Mrs Tamani said.

"These include all the required courses the officers have to undergo if they are to rise through the ranks."

Mrs Tamani said a relevant development framework would allow the department to retain the skills and intellectual capabilities of some of staff members who have had years of experience.

"Such training will also motivate our officers to perform well at the next level. We also want to ensure we are committed to developing and enhancing staff capabilities throughout the ranks."

Mrs Tamani said staff development and training for senior officers and subordinates would be tailor-made to ensure it served as a platform for officers to pave a career path to higher ranking posts and responsibilities.

A total of $70,000 has been allocated for training next year.
