Our training and development program has two tracks:
Job Related – A training that is required by your department to maintain or improve knowledge and skills in your current role. It is also training that is directly and immediately related to the work needs of the unit. For new employees in particular, this type of training is critical to successful transition to your new job. In addition, this type of training is also geared toward improving job performance and to help you qualify for career advancement.
Life-Long Learning – As the name indicates, Life-Long Learning is a program to promote continuous learning on subjects and activities of interest to you. It was developed in Fall 2009 upon recognition of the need for courses to provide opportunities to expand your mind and broaden your experience, in a fun and a sociable atmosphere. In Life-Long Learning, the subjects of inquiry are potentially limitless. They can be something that you already know but want to learn more about, something you don’t know at all, or something that interests or piques your curiosity. The concept about Life-Long Learning is that it should be fun. Broad subjects of inquiry under the Life-Long Learning program may include (1) Society and Culture: diversity, politics, pop culture, government, anthropology, geography, foreign languages; (2) Health & Fitness: exercise, food, nutrition, diet, and medical reference; (3) Art and History: photography, painting, jewelry, sculpture and music and dance to mention a few.
