By BBN Staff: The Ministry of the Public Service hosted a Clerical Promotional Program to provide vital training initiatives to enhance the aptitude and competency of public officers.
The program was held from April 9 to June 8, 2018 and was geared towards increasing the capacity and skills of the various clerks employed by the government of Belize.
It also provided working knowledge of the relevant laws and regulations, policies, processes as well as the technical functions required of them.
Furthermore, the program offered a means to standardize the level of verbal and written communication within government agencies.
The program consisted of six core subjects and five technical subjects.
Each participant was required to select one technical subject for a total of seven subjects. A total of 128 public officers participated in the program.
These officers serve in the capacities of Second Class Clerks, Customs & Excise Clerks III, Income Tax Clerks II, General Sales Tax Clerks II, Immigration and Nationality Clerks II, Audit Clerks II and Postal Clerk II.
Eighty-seven percent of the participants were successful. Three months after the programme’s conclusion, an impact assessment will be conducted to determine the transfer of knowledge into the workplace through observation, surveys, and interviews.
