HRDC Conducts Training for Sector HRD Committee Members

The Human Resource Development Council through its Department of Human Resource Development Planning (HRDP) – Demand, hosted a two day workshop at Avani Hotel from Wednesday 14th to Thursday 15th June 2017. The aim of the workshop was to provide training to Sector Committee Members and Staff on methodologies for assessing and approving National and Sector Human Resource Development Plans.

Giving the welcome remarks on the first day of the workshop, Dr Raphael Dingalo, Chief Executive Officer (CEO) of HRDC said “It is a great pleasure for me to welcome you to this training Workshop. You will agree with me that work on the development of sector-based Human Resource Development Plans (HRDP) commenced as far back as in 2012. However, the process has been slow and to date, only four (4) Sector Plans out of the 12 Sectors have been approved as working documents by the HRDC Board.”

He further highlighted that the training is expected to equip all Sector Committees with Human Resource Development Planning skills. He added that it will help them in appreciating the process so that they know what is expected of them as they guide and support the development process of sectoral plans as well as the National HRD Plan.

Presenting the objectives of the workshop, Dr Fernando Siamisang, Director HRDP-Demand said, “This training will provide Sector Committee members on methodologies for assessment and approvals of both the National and Sector Human Resource Development Plans.” He also introduced Prof. Hoosen Rasool who is an experienced labour market consultant for FR Research Services.

Giving vote of thanks at the end of the training, the Chief Operations Officer (COO) Mr. Meshack Tafa, extended a vote of thanks to all sector committees participating in the training. He further thanked HRDC staff for organising such a training and also applauded the training facilitator, Prof. Rasool for such a well presented session.
