New training modules for Central secretariat employees soon: DoPT secretary

A NEW training policy that is likely to be unveiled soon for Central secretariat service officials, will keep pace with the requirements of changing demands of governance, said DoPT secretary Alka Sirohi.
Sirohi, a 1974 batch Madhya Pradesh cadre IAS, asked the Institute of Secretariat Training and Management (ISTM) to clear the backlog of training 7000 Central Secretariat employees during a prize distribution function. Sirohi also suggested that distant learning and e-learning courses could be devised for larger coverage and stressed the need to make training modules and courses relevant and topical.
The ISTM, an organization specializing capacity building, consultancy and research support mainly for the Central Secretariat, in 2009-10 conducted 169 courses for UDCs, assistants, section officers and under secretaries and 4252 participants were trained.
