Face-to-face training activities continue

ITS continues to organize face-to-face training activities working within COVID-19 restrictions. Vaccination against COVID-19 is mandatory for all course participants and instructors; this is to protect Member States hosting courses, course participants, course instructors and support staff. Working within COVID-19 restrictions means that we are conducting courses with a lower number of participants to ensure that we can meet social distancing requirements which are set by the host. All calls for nominations for ITS courses will require certification that the nominated participants are vaccinated against COVID-19. 

 

New Deployment Review Mobile App now available on iPhone and Android Devices

The Deployment Review Mobile App has been developed to provide military and police personnel with knowledge capture methodology. The new mobile app is available for use by military and police personnel from all troop and police contributing countries (T/PCCs) and national training centres. The app has been developed to serve as an effective, secure, and user-friendly tool for optimizing knowledge capture to encourage the voluntary sharing of practices among uniformed personnel. It also complements existing knowledge management mechanisms and can serve as a blueprint for future systems to be developed. Learning and improving upon previous experiences is vital to ensuring the safety and security of all personnel, as well as effectively delivering the operational mandate.

The app was developed by the Light Coordination Mechanism (LCM) of the Department of Peace Operations (DPO) and supported by the UN Department of Operational Support (DOS) and the Department of Global Communications (DGC). Information security protocols have been configured to restrict the app from collecting user data.

On your mobile device, you can download the iPhone app here, and the Android app here.

Upcoming UN Police Certified Instructor Development Course

The Strategic Guidance Framework for International Policing (SGF) aims to enhance the effectiveness of UN policing through consistent approaches to the provision of public safety, police reform and support to host-state services, and to ensure police trainers possess the necessary specialized skills and competencies to meet contemporary peacekeeping demands and challenges. As part of efforts to operationalize the SGF, ITS is conducting a second UN Police (UNPOL) Certified Instructor Development course in Entebbe from 7 to 18 March 2022, in an effort to increase the pool of available certified instructors who can assist DPO in the roll-out of the newly developed STMs for UNPOL to Member States.

 

Rollout of the new Specialized Training Materials for UN Police

ITS will continue the rollout of the new STMs for UNPOL, which uses the SGF as its foundation to meet contemporary challenges for UN policing. The new STMs for UNPOL consists of 11 lessons aimed to increase the knowledge and skills of UNPOL certified instructors to better facilitate, deliver and evaluate police training courses. The STMs include results-based learning processes, lesson sequencing, communication skills, giving and receiving feedback and classroom management.

From 4 to 14 April, ITS with the Bureau of International Narcotics and Law Enforcement Affairs (INL) will conduct a training of trainers’ course for the new STMs for UNPOL at the West Africa Regional Training Center (RTC) in Accra, Ghana for African police trainers.

Following the Secretariat’s introduction of a new Executive Management Programme, thirty-four managers from nine peacekeeping missions, service centres and special political missions participated in the first cohort of the course from June to October 2019. 

The Executive Management Programme is a blended learning programme featuring online learning modules (webinars, reading materials, online discussions and self-study), 360°assessment, coaching and a weeklong face-to-face workshop. The Executive Management Programme face-to-face workshop for the field mission managers was held at the UN Regional Service Centre in Entebbe (RSCE) from 21 – 25 October.

Following the Training of Trainers in Supervisory Skills Training (SST) course held as part of a certification programme for missions in March 2019, other training interventions through webinars, video-conference sessions and reading assignments were conducted for mission trainers in fulfillment of the requirements of the initiative. The series of interventions were later followed up with practical application through the delivery of the course in UNIFIL, from 18-21 June 2019 and UNMISS from 25-28 June.

Training to Strengthen Mission Performance (Mar 2019) 

To strengthen the capacity of trainers in the field and ensure that they are adequately equipped with the knowledge, skills, and behaviour required to perform their duties, ITS conducted a series of courses for trainers drawn from peacekeeping and special political missions. The courses held in March 2019, included the Conduct of Exercises to Strengthen Mission Performance; Management of Learning & Presentation Skills; Monitoring and Evaluating Training Programmes using Participatory Methodologies; and Training of Trainers in Supervisory Skills Training. Of particular mention is the Supervisory Skills Training (SST) which is conducted as a certification programme for increasing the pool of mission trainers that are capable of delivering supervisory skills training for supervisors and managers in the field thereby enhancing the management of resources. The skills of the SST trainers are further being strengthened through follow-up webinars and video-conference sessions as well as practical application of the skills gained.

Several participants of the series of training expressed their delight at having the opportunity to enrich their knowledge and receive guidance on various methods to be used in reaching out to other mission personnel. They also indicated their commitment to put the lessons learnt into practice. ITS also plans to deliver the second batch of a course on Mission Staff Officers Planning Process at the end of April. The first course on the subject held from 21-25 January 2019, targets the strengthening of the skills of Staff Officers (SOs) in military planning and decision making in peace operations. Those trained are to deliver similar courses for other Staff Officers with the goal of enhancing mandate implementation.

The workshop also gave the trainers the opportunity to enhance their skills through delivery of components of the course, to ensure that they were relevant for the intended audience.

Training Enhancement Visits

The major goal of the visits was to provide strategic and operational guidance to the enhanced and efficient delivery of training and other learning initiatives for mission personnel.

This included working with mission leadership to identify areas where specific training support may be needed for uniformed and civilian components, provision of immediate support to the Integrated Mission Training Centres (IMTCs) in identifying training needs to support implementation of the dos Santos Cruz Report; identifying key gaps in pre-deployment training and enhancing IMTC capacity to deliver mandate-related training and meet DPKO-DFS training standards and priorities.
