Friday, July 04, 2003 - The Ministry of the Public Service is putting the finishing touches to a two-week international training programme to be hosted here come next week. The July 7th – 18th The exercise, dubbed the “Strategic Project Management and Executive Development Programme for the Public Sector,” is aimed at enhancing the competencies of managers, supervisors and heads of sections within the service.

Senior Training Officer in the Ministry of Labour Relations, Public Service and Cooperatives - Lydia Anselm, says due to the lack of local funding, a proposal was submitted to the Commonwealth Secretariat through the Commonwealth Fund for Technical Cooperation (CFTC). Anslem says the in-country programme was subsequently upgraded to include other Caribbean countries along with countries from the Mediterranean region.

According to her, “given our environmental realities, the pace of change taking place in the global arena and its impact on the way we do things nationally and in terms of our capacities to respond to the general public, we constantly have to be reviewing what we are doing while looking for ways of being even more responsive. We are therefore hoping that at the end of this programme, the persons who attend will leave with renewed enthusiasm and new techniques in terms of managing their work, persons they supervise, and their overall projects,” said Anslem.

Resource persons to the meeting will come from a number of regional institutions with Dr. Janine Comma from the Centre for Management Development of the UWI Cave Hill Campus in Barbados serving as lead facilitator. Some thirty (30) participants from the Caribbean and the Mediterranean will join ten (10) of their counterparts from St. Lucia for the meeting.

The activity at the Cara Suites Hotel, will allow the CFTC to meet with its various points of contact (POCs) from the Caribbean and the Mediterranean.
