Professional Development Course on Research and Planning for Action Officers of Research and Planning Sections
As part of the interim support to Nepal Police, FDM organized a training program in March 2012 for the Action Officers of Research and Planning Sections under the Research and Planning Directorate (R&P D). The training was provided to 40 officers and was divided into three stages. The first stage, which was conducted in Kathmandu, was a 3 days training on basic skills on research and planning. At the end of the training period, all participants were given a research assignment to be completed in two months time. The participants were required to submit their proposal within a week’s time, which was then reviewed by the course management team to provide required post-training support to the participants for re-writing the proposal as well as for data collection. This activity was followed by another round of post-training support provided to the officers in Kathmandu, Biratnagar, Hetauda, Pokhara, Dipayal, and Surkhet. After the completion of research, a follow up training was provided to the participants in a one-day workshop where they further revised their papers based on the feedback received.
