Trainings for Local Self-Government started for Gyumri municipality staff
On the 20th and 21st of March 2014, the first phase of trainings for the employees of Gyumri municipality was held in Gyumri municipality conference room.
The Counterpart International Armenia, the LDA foundation Armenia, with ALDA and NGO Center support, were the organizers. Among the training topics there were “Local self-government legislation” and “Leadership and strategy planning”. The trainers were Irina Vanyan and Hrant Ayvazyan, accordingly invited from Yerevan and Vanadzor. With an opening speech, the Staff employer of Gyumri Municipality mentioned the importance of such training, hence within the last year there were essential amendments in the working staff conditioned with the change of the city mayor.
The training sessions are a great possibility for employees to learn more. Indeed, even though the new hired employees have all the relevant qualifications, sometimes they face lack of theory knowledge combined with practical tools. Moreover, in the middle of April, the employees of each department have to be submitted to certification exams, and the gained knowledge during these trainings will be very useful.
Proud of trainers and participants, the organizers describe this opportunity as an important moment of learning, sharing and producing. They all look forward to participating to the next phase of training.
