NASSAU, The Bahamas — Minister of Labour, National Insurance, and the
Public Service, the Hon. D. Shane Gibson announced in the House of
Assembly, Bay Street, on March 30th, that the Policy and Planning
Unit, which is responsible for securing the priority training areas in
the Public Service for the purpose of granting In-Service Training
Awards, Education & Training and Remuneration in the Public Service,
has completed a document relevant to Training Awards that has been circulated to the various Ministries and Departments.
“The Ministry will now have a more structured training and educational
program,” he said.
This information is also being used, he said, to determine the
courses offered by the Public Service Centre for Human Resource
Development (PSCHRD). Greater emphasis is now placed on Customer Service programs; and a return to the original intent of the Upgrading Courses for B-G-C-S-E, B-J-C and Pitman, which was to enable employees to
obtain additional qualifications in order to secure promotions,” said
“Further, the PSCHRD is in the process of obtaining approval for the
acceptance of a program to train persons, who are interested in Human
Resources for deployment to those Agencies where there is a need. We
expect this program to begin early in the new budget year.”
Minister Gibson added that this will be replicated for Records
Management Units or Registries, and Secretaries and Personal
Assistants and these courses will result in the professional
certification of these officers.
