CTD scheduled training programs range from two to five days. Each training program includes recognized and contemporary concepts and theories, while being practically orientated. Programs include a range of different learning techniques, including, but not limited to, group discussions, individual and group exercises, simulations, role-playing and case studies. Handout and reading materials are usually given for all topics covered to complement learning and assist with participants transferring their skills and knowledge back into the workplace. The number of participants ranges from 20-25 people.
CTD scheduled training programmes are offered in Suva, Lautoka and Labasa. The venue for these programs in Suva is CTD (located at Queen Elizabeth Drive, Nasese), which is a modern training venue, with up-to-date technology and experienced and qualified staff.
Scheduled courses for the year are based on pre-determined by the Training Need of Ministries/ Departments. Therefore nominations for all courses/workshops should be made and supported by the Training Nomination/Selection and Analysis Form to reach the Commission’s Training Division as soon as the Training Plan is issued.
Nominations without completed Training and Nomination/Selection and Analysis form will not be accepted.
Quality Assurance of CTD Training Programs
CTD takes a systematic three-step approach to ensure the programs are delivered at a high standard and are effective at developing skills and transferring knowledge to trainees.
Pre and Post-Course Trainee Appraisal
Training needs are properly identified through determining the pre-course and post-course level of knowledge, skills and attitudes of participants.
Daily and End-of Course Evaluation
Training Officers monitor the progress of learning during the course through sumups, reflection and group discussion sessions. Trainees are provided with the opportunity to evaluate the programs daily and also at the end of the course.
Three months after the training, trainees and their supervisors are required to assess the effectiveness of the training undertaken on the actual job performance. This form can be downloaded on the PSC website.
