The second workshop on Training Needs Assessment in the field of Administrative Judiciary was held in Ankara on 26-27 February 2020. 30 representatives of stakeholders of the future training programmes, including judges and court presidents, clerks and members of Regional Administrative Courts and first instance courts from around the country, Council of State, Union of Turkish Bars Associations, Turkish Judicial Academy and Directorate of Training in Ministry of Justice, participated in the workshop.
Being the first of its kind in the field of Administrative Judiciary, the Training Needs Assessment survey attracted the attention of all concerned parties. The outcomes of the previous needs-assessment workshop and of the online survey, which reached over 1000 judges and court personnel, were shared with the participants. The proposed training purpose, format, method and techniques were presented to the participants. Working groups discussed proposals related to the course topics, learning objectives and the target groups.
The next step of the activity will be to create training curriculum and materials for in-service training modules that will be organized for a total of 800 beneficiaries, including judges, lawyers and court personnel. The training approach and modules will be tested first in selected pilot courts after the training of trainers.
