Ukraine will host this year’s specialized course within the scope of NATO-Ukraine Professional Development Program, during which the best NATO and Ukrainian experts will for the first time train officials from 52 government institutions in public speaking, analytical thinking, strategic planning, project management skills. On January 27, Deputy Prime Minister for European and Euro-Atlantic Integration of Ukraine Dmytro Kuleba announced.
"Ukrainian civil servants engaged in Euro-Atlantic integration in government institutions have a good level of professional knowledge. There was always a serious lack of public speaking skills, presentations, English skills, and more. This year, for the first time, we are organizing in synergy with NATO a large-scale training to enhance such skills for professionals of 52 Ukrainian state institutions, " Deputy Prime Minister for European and Euro-Atlantic Integration stressed.
The course will be attended by civil servants whose duties include the issues of Ukraine's Euro-Atlantic integration. The best NATO experts will come to Ukraine to train, and Ukrainian experts, in particular from the non-governmental sector, will be involved.
"Thanks to such training Ukraine will have, figuratively speaking, a special unit of professional experts on Euro-Atlantic integration in the public service. This is one of the pragmatic steps of our Government aimed at the real rapprochement of Ukraine with NATO, which will significantly increase the effectiveness of cooperation between our country and the Alliance," Dmytro Kuleba explained.
The training will be held within the framework of the Champions 100 project organized by the NATO-Ukraine Program for the Professional Development of Civilian Personnel in the Security and Defense Sector of Ukraine (Professional Development Program) in cooperation with the Government Office for Coordination. The participants will receive ertificates after the completion of the course.
The NATO-Ukraine Professional Development Programme is implemented as part of the Comprehensive Assistance Package to Ukraine, which was approved at the Warsaw Summit of NATO on July 9, 2016 in response to Russia's aggression against Ukraine to assist our country in meeting its key reforming priorities in the security and defense sectors and to achieve compatibility with NATO forces.
