Oyo-Ita Promises More Training For Civil Servants
The Head of the Civil Service of the Federation (HoCSF), Mrs. Winifred Oyo-Ita, has submitted that civil servants in the country need more training to be able to deliver in their places of work.
She identified that most civil servants do not get any update on training for service delivery beyond what they get at the point of entry into their jobs adding that this may not meet the peculiar needs of the public service.
She therefore lamented that this has resulted in skills deficiency among the civil servants.
Oyo-Ita made the submission in Abuja while unveiling the findings of the Training Needs Assessment, (TNA) at a meeting with the Chief Executive Officers of Manpower Development Institutions, (MDIs), Daily Trust reports.
Naija News understands the TNA survey was administered on 1,076 civil servants between grade levels 7-17, out of which 670 responded.
The HoCSF stated that a Structured Assessment-Based Training Programme (SMAT-P), and Leadership Enhancement and Development Programme (LEAD-P), both of which are targeted at training at least 25,000 civil servants by 2020, will kick off in May.
“A lot of civil servants after the initial training they get when coming in, they are left like that. Even when they are promoted, they are not further trained,” she said.
