United Nations Staff Officers’ Training of Trainers Pilot Course, Entebbe Train the Trainers’ Centre, 3 to 14 October 2016
The Integrated Training Service (ITS) and the Office of Military Affairs of the Department of Peacekeeping Operations (DPKO) and Department of Field Support (DFS) will conduct a pilot Training of Trainers programme for the United Nations Staff Officer Course for Troop Contributing Member States at the Entebbe Support Base in Uganda from 3 to 14 October 2016. The course will be delivered in English. A pilot Francophone Staff Officers’ Training of Trainers’ course will be held over the period 28 November to 9 December 2016. This will be the first course to be held at the Training of Trainers’ (TOT) Centre being established at the Entebbe Support Base. In 2015, the Secretary-General announced his intention to establish a TOT Centre in Entebbe. The over-arching aim of the centre is to strengthen the capacity of Member States to deliver UN-required training for uniformed personnel deploying to peacekeeping operations. The centre will conduct both military and police training for Member States’ trainers. For the first two years of its operations the centre will be supported by voluntary contributions (financial and personnel) from interested Member States. At the conclusion of the two-year period, the results of the centre will be evaluated and a request made to include the centre within the peacekeeping support account. Participants at the course will undertake a training of trainers’ programme to strengthen their capacity to deliver the UN Staff Officer Course. The programme will deliver the modules of the course, provide participants with an opportunity to strengthen training delivery skills, provide details of the latest developments in staff officer duties and enable direct interaction with officers from the Integrated Training Service and the Office of Military Affairs on military training issues. Feedback from the participants will be used to strengthen the TOT centre initiative.
