61 staff from the Department of Prime Minister and National Executive Council graduated with certificates in Certificate in Computing and Information Technology, Investigative Report Writing and Basic Report Writing at the Manasupe Haus.
A total of 71 staff including security personnel and drivers were privileged to be the first staff members sponsored by their department to take up this course at the Pacific Institute of Leadership and Governance.
An emotional Chief Secretary to Government Ambassador Isaac Lupari congratulates those that successfully completed their respective courses.
“Some of my staff that graduated today do not have diplomas or degrees and some have been in this department for a long time and this is probably the first training they attended,” said Lupari.
“I take this opportunity to congratulate PM&NEC for being one of the first departments in 2019 to commit over K400,000 for staff to attend this program,” said Acting Secretary for Department of Personnel Management Taies Sansan. Sansan added that PILAG and Precinct Programs have assisted over 3,000 public servants already in various short courses and it’s important that agencies continue to monitor and evaluate the performance of their staff in order to see real value for investment and the impact these officers are having in their respective organizations.
