Training Needs Assessment Released
The Themis Secretariat prepared a training needs assessment in the first quarter of 2015. The report was compiled in the context of preparations for the activities planned in the 2014 to 2015 work plan
. Cluster 2, which is devoted to individual and institutional capacity building, includes three cycles of trainings: regional, sub-regional and national (also called on-the-job trainings). In order to ensure that the trainings reflect the needs and priorities of the participating administrations, the Themis Secretariat undertook a survey involving representatives from each country. The results are presented in this report and will form the basis for an informed decision on what major topics to include in each training cycle. The information provided in this report will be used to form a training plan for all three training cycles mentioned above. The data were collected using an online questionnaire and later aggregated to form a general view. Some country-specific information is also provided, although the focus was to identify common trends across all countries in order to foster international cooperation on shared needs and priorities.
