On 18 August, the final stage of training at the Summer School of Coaching Skills, an educational project launched by the High School of Public Governance in cooperation with the National Agency of Ukraine on Civil Service and international partners, took place.
The 100 participants of the Summer School, who were trained for 4 days, received certificates and were enrolled in the High School’s database of trainers. This will allow them to participate in the implementation of training programmes for public servants and local government officials as trainers.
In fact, this was the idea behind the implementation of this educational project – to create a professional team of specialists who will act as trainers for certain professional development programmes, share professional experience through the development of a peer-to-peer learning system.
According to the Director of the High School, Yuliia Lykhach, the summer school is focused on implementing the idea of continuous learning through the development of life skills in the face of change and provides for a harmonious combination of scientific, educational, cultural and mass activities.
This educational project is planned to be held annually in cooperation with domestic and foreign higher education institutions, regional training centres, scientific institutions, NGOs, and international technical assistance projects.
“We hope that the Summer School of Coaching Skills will become the hallmark of the School and will bring together more and more professionals, like-minded people who want to develop, share their experience and implement new effective projects in the field of public administration every year,” summed up Director Yuliia Lykhach.
The High School of Public Governance is grateful to the international technical assistance projects for their support, implementation and hosting of the event: “Support to Ukraine’s Government Reforms (SURGe), UNDP Ukraine, the United Nations Population Fund in Ukraine, UN Women Ukraine, the Dr Dennis Mukwege Foundation, the EU Project “Support to Comprehensive Public Administration Reform in Ukraine” (EU4PAR), and the Ukrainian Women Lawyers Association “JurFem”.
