Enhancing training excellence through a quality assurance mechanism

 

The Human Resource Training Center of the Ministry of Environment and Forestry in collaboration with FORCLIME conducted a workshop on Quality Assurance for Environmental and Forestry Training and Education on 14-15 October 2019 in Bogor, West Java. The workshop aims to have similar perception related to the accreditation procedures of the training institution and the procedures for implementing collaborative education through a quality assurance mechanism. This quality assurance is carried out through mentoring by the Human Resource Training Center of the Ministry of Environment and Forestry to government and private training institutions so that the quality of these institutions meets the standards set. The workshop was attended by 60 people representing the Ministry of Environment and Forestry, the Provincial Government Training Center for Human Resources Development, private training institutions, State Administration Institution (LAN) and university’s training institutions.

In his remarks, the Head of the Human Resources Planning and Development Agency (BP2SDM) of the Ministry of Environment and Forestry said that the cabinet work programme emphasizes the development of human resources, so that the quality of the education and training programme needs to be further improved including the capacity of the lecturer.

Head of the Human Resource Training Center of the Ministry of Environment and Forestry said that the annual target is 7,500 trained people, however, due to limited resources, only 50% is achieved. Therefore, cooperation with government and private education and training institutions is a strategy that needs to be developed in the future.
