Palestinian prosecutors were trained to train

In its efforts to increase the judicial capacities of the Palestinian judiciary, the Mission has conducted a four day ‘train-the-trainer’ course for the Palestinian Judicial Institute.

The objective the course was to develop the theoretical and practical training skills of 15 prosecutors to become capable trainers. The course participants will be joining the pool of Palestinian Judicial Institute trainers whose mission it is to deliver training to the beneficiaries of the Palestinian Judicial Institute and to transfer the ‘train-the-trainer’ skills to their colleagues.

Upon completion of the course, the participants will be able to plan and deliver capable trainings, including to identify and analyze training needs, to establish training objectives, to select the most effective training methods, to plan courses, to prepare training materials, to deliver varied training sessions suitable for different learning needs and to conduct evaluation on a scientific basis.

The course was delivered in Ramallah by Dr. Tuqan Qishawi, a Palestinian training and education expert, and included exercises on systematic learning, group trainings and role play.

The ‘train-the-trainer’ course forms part of a project with the overall objective to improve the operational capacity of the judiciary and to empower the Palestinian Judicial Institute to fulfil its role as the acknowledged training institute for capacity building of the judiciary. The project is a continuation of the Mission’s support for the Institute through capacity building activities and is in line with the EUPOL COPPS’ Mission Implementation Plan.

I can move from traditional training to a more systematic training approach based on analysing the needs of my training audience. I have become a more skilled instructor. This course was very valuable, in fact it was one of the most successful courses I have attended”, said Nisreem Zienah Rishmawi, Chief Prosecutor at the Cyber Crime and IT Unit of the Attorney General’s Office, after attending the course.
