Rwamagana, 03 September 2021
Today the 03rd September 2021 at Rwamagana Training School, 14 Correctional Officers concluded a level II RCS PSO ToT Training workshop.
In partnership with RCS, United Nations Institute of Training and Research (UNITAR) organized and conducted a Training of Trainers (ToT) level II which started from 23rd August 2021 and ended today on 03rd September 2021 with a focus on how to design and deliver adult training and professional learning: how to monitor and evaluate their impact on behavior and how to capitalize on capacity development.
All participants were given the UNITAR Tool box and this offers the expertise on how best to deliver the training, to capture and retain knowledge and build upon it to achieve lasting change. This builds on the specific expertise on how to design and deliver adult training and professional learning which should explain what is required to carry out training needs assessment, KSA (Knowledge, Skills Attitudes), setting SMART learning objectives and should be a Result Based using ADDIE model which includes analysis, Design, Development, Implementation and Evaluation which are essential to make a desired change.
In his remarks, the Commissioner General of RCS, CGP Juvenal MARIZAMUNDA, congratulated the participants for a successful completion of the training.
“I would like to congratulate the participants for successful completion of this training and I thank you for your active participation and commitment during the last 2 weeks.” CGP Juvenal MARIZAMUNDA remarked
The Commissioner General also reminded the participant that continuous learning is very important, for it allows trainers to understand the contemporary challenges of the profession of corrections.
He stated “You have completed Level 2 training. However, there is more work to be done individually and collectively. Remember we still have another phase to complete, ToT level 3. Continuous learning is very important, for it allows trainers to understand and address the contemporary challenges of the profession of corrections.”
CGP Juvenal MARIZAMUNDA appreciated UNITAR, for their support in organizing such training, and for the overall and unwavering support in RCS’s journey towards the establishment of a PSO Center of Excellence at RCS Training School.
After this training, participants are expected to be able to apply skills leant while training Correctional officers at different levels which will increase and improve their performance, and by doing so, it will create a good impact at the institutional level (RCS).
They will also have increased KSA (Knowledge, Skills, Attitudes) as professional PSO trainers which in turn will be transferred to the selected potential candidates and thus improving performance in UN Peace Keeping missions.
