Implementation of National Training Policy: Improve Official Competence

The Govt has asked all its ministries, public sector units and departments to “urgently undertake” a detailed training programme to improve competence of government officials.  The government has also suggested
development of Annual Training Plan (ATP) by each ministry or department for all employees working under it, development of domain or sector specific trainers and training institutions as ‘Centre of Excellence’.
“The overarching training framework enunciated in the National Training Policy, (NTP) 2012 is ‘Competency Framework’. “Implementation of this concept by ministries or departments would bring to light various competency gaps of employees that need to be bridged through a range of training interventions to enhance their performance,” the DoPT said in an office memorandum.  To meet the quantum of training requirement arising out of the adoption of competency framework, each ministry, department or Cadre Controlling Authority would have to urgently undertake the appointment of training manager and creation of training cell to institutionalise the training and development activities, it said.
It will also carry out a thorough review after three years of training and skill development programme conducted by each of them as part of the initiative under the National Training Policy (NTP).
