2016 ENTO Conference and General Assembly

As usual when Pierre Petit and the Conseil Regionale de la Formation de la Region Wallonie (www.crf-wallonie.be) take the lead, ENTO Conference and General Assembly cannot be defined less than “marvellous”!

2016 ENTO Conference was a great opportunity to discover the wallonian system for vocational training. We had the chance to visit different sites of Le Forem (www.leforem.be), but also to discover the beautiful landscape of the Wallon Region and its capitol city, Namur.

Plans for the future

During 2016 General Assembly, Representatives of ENTO members had the chance to discuss of future plans for strenghtening cooperation and innovative approach in the field of training for local and regional authorities. 

 


The 28th General Meeting - 3 October 2015

Armenia hosted 28th General Assembly ENTO (European Network of Training Organizations), which took place in Yerevan at the Eurasia Partnership Foundation (EPF) office on 3 October 2015. ENTO members from Armenia, Belgium, Croatia, France, Georgia, Germany, and Switzerland participated in the General Assembly. The participants were informed about the annual activities and expenditures of the organization. The draft budget for the next year was presented. The EPF Armenia presented its activities including in the field of local governance, where they support monitoring of the reforms in public administration. The General Assembly considered the possibility of joining EPF to the ENTO as soon as EPF Armenia makes final decision and submits an application for membership to ENTO. Options were discussed about the location of the next General Assembly.

 

Seminars on Good Governance

A new format of discussions of issues related to local and regional authorities was applied in Armenia by suggestion of the ENTO member the Urban Foundation for Sustainable Development. The Urban Foundation organized two series of seminars in Gyumri and Yerevan on the topic of Good Governance.

The seminar in Gyumri, in the second largest city of Armenia, was supported by ALDA and was conducted at Armenian State University of Economics, Gyumri Branch and generated an unprecedented interest of the students. About 100 students participated in the seminar and actively discussed and presented their viewpoints on the concept and practices of Good Governance presented by ENTO experts.

While the audience of Gyumri seminar were students, Yerevan seminar audience were predominantly professors and staff of the Public Administration Academy (PAA) of Armenia including the Rector. After the presentations by ENTO and PAA on Good Governance and discussions, participants came to terms to draft a joint article on the topic.

177046273The 27th General Meeting - 1- 3 October 2014

On October 3rd, 2014, the general meeting of the ENTO will take place itself in Belgium and will be organized by the Conseil regional de la Formation (CRF).

In addition to this general meeting, it seems to us interesting to carry out an extensive debate on the local civil services – or the public services – which exist in the members' States of the ENTO. Through a comparative perspective, this debate will be also the place to look into the challenges with which these civil services are going through.

Concretely, our reflections will be organized over 2 days (October 1st and 2nd, 2014).

Around the theme:

Summary of plenary debates of 1 October 2014

Summary of thematic workshops October 2, 2014

October 1st, 2014 : Discussions in plenary session.

The target audience of this day is large (approximately 150 participants), including agents of the civil service, various organizations on the ground, leading names in the field of politics, academic researchers, etc.


It would be very interesting that you take part in this first day session presented as a variation in 3 topics:

  • Axis 1: Political system

The main objective of this first is to describe the political system in which, either the civil service, or public services are developing at the local level.

Through a series of questions, the objective will be to define the contour of the local institutions, to show how responsibilities at different levels of government are defined: How are different levels of power (legislative and executive) made up? What is the position of the mayor? How is he elected? What are its legal missions? Who are the main actors of the local government? Who is running the local administrations? Which are the external influences?

  • Axis 2: Civil service and public service

The second topic of this day will be devoted to the question of the civil service and the public services.

The review will compare various systems on basis on the type of contract which binds the workers with their employer, on the recruitment methods, etc.

  • Axis 3: Training

The third axis will be dedicated to the question of training, highlighting for each country the characteristics of the training in the local authorities. Within this context, the discussions will be directed towards answering a series of questions, namely: how is the training organized for the top executives, for the agents and since when? Which are the main drivers for training? Which are the discouraging factors? Etc.

To ensure these debates will be prepared in the best possible way, we would like to better apprehend your system of public service. This is the reason why we wish to conduct a survey during the month of February. Your participation is therefore solicited to attain the high quality information necessary for a credible report.

October 2nd, 2014: thematic workshops declined around 3 topics

  • Competences: validation of competences and the valorization of skills.
  • The Applicability of management by objective in comparison with the structure of the local civil service;
  • The evaluation in training.
