The Civil Service Commission (CSC) invites government employees to enroll and participate in the learning and development (L&D) programs offered by the Civil Service Institute (CSI) for May 2023.

CSC Chairperson Karlo Nograles announced that CSI, as the training and development arm of the CSC, is offering various online and in-person courses from 2 to 23 May 2023 to enrich civil servants' knowledge and address competency gaps in the workforce.

“Patuloy na nag-aalok ang CSC ng training courses para sa mas mahuhusay at maaasahang lider at lingkod bayan na kayang humarap sa mga hamon ng new normal tungo sa de-kalidad na serbisyo publiko,” said Chairperson Nograles.

Human resource management (HRM) practitioners and leaders are encouraged to enroll in the two-day Competency-Based Behavioral Event Interview Course to be held online on 2 and 4 May. The program aims to enable the participants to apply, practice, and monitor the evaluation and assessment of potential candidates for a vacant position using Behavioral Event Interviewing (BEI) and Competency-Based Interviewing (CBI).

The online Program/Course Delivery and Administration on 3 May will enable Learning and Development Practitioners to deliver and administer L&D programs in a structured manner - from planning to the preparation of terminal reports.

On 9 and 11 May, the online Ethical Leadership Course designed for managers, division chiefs, supervisors, or equivalent positions will inspire attendees to apply ethical and moral standards in practicing leadership in the public sector.

The Well-Being Centric Leadership Webinar on 16, 18, and 23 May will introduce various leadership strategies to promote positive cultures and working environments toward employee wellness and productivity.

The online Gender, Diversity, and Social Inclusion Seminar, scheduled on 17 and 19 May, will equip participants with sensitivity which will positively impact diversity. The course aims to introduce approaches for social inclusion and discuss and explore the role of leaders in managing diversity and navigating gender-related differences toward fostering a culture of social inclusion in their workplaces.

Participants who have completed the abovementioned courses, including the required course requirements, will receive a certificate of completion with the appropriate number of leadership and managerial training hours.

“Ang mga ganitong interbensiyon ay bahagi ng regular na programa ng Komisyon upang magbigay ng angkop na pagsasanay at pagpapaunlad ng kakayahan para sa mga opisyal at kawani ng pamahalaan. Ang kanilang bagong matutunan dito ay magagamit nila sa pagtupad ng kanilang tungkulin para mapaglingkuran nang mahusay ang ating mga stakeholders,” Chairperson Nograles added.

Meanwhile, the Leadership and Management Certification Program (CPro) is an alternative path to meet the educational requirement (Master’s degree) for appointment to division chief and executive/managerial positions. Beginning 2 May, the CSI will administer the CPro Training Track, where 40 participants will go through the Leadership and Management Development Course covering five (5) leadership competencies and will implement a 90-day action learning project within their organization. The candidates will also undertake a Competency Assessment consisting of a written test, portfolio review, and behavioral event interview. Those who pass the assessment will be conferred a Certificate in Leadership and Management, which can be used to satisfy the educational requirement for Division Chief and executive/managerial positions.

"By continuously offering quality L&D programs, the CSC is one step closer toward achieving one of its strategic objectives, which is to professionalize and empower the human resources in the civil service. Napaka-importante para sa ating mga lingkod bayan ang magkaroon ng patuloy na pag-aaral upang madagdagan ang kanilang kaalaman at higit pang mahasa ang kanilang kakayahan para makapagbigay ng maayos na serbisyo publiko," said Chairperson Nograles.
