Regional-level Refresher Trainer’s Training (RR-ToT)


Regional-level Refresher Trainer’s Training (RR-ToT)

Following up with the nation-wide training program in 2071, SISM2 has technically supporting DoE/NCED/CDC for conducting refresher training/orientation at Regional, District, RC and School-level throughout the nation in the Year of 2072 to support schools for updating of the Annual SIP. As a first step of the refresher, SISM2 organized 2-day Regional-level Refresher Training of Trainers (RR-ToTs) in all five regions in Jan/Feb 2016. The objectives of the RR-ToTs were 1) to train District-level trainers, who will organize and facilitate District-level Orientation program and to prepare them to guide and monitor the RC-level Orientation and School-level Workshop (SLW) in their district; and 2) to provide the participants with the knowledge and skills of how to support schools to improve school management using SIP and how to include disaster preparedness in the SIP.

As for the facilitators, all of the T5 members engaged in the preparation and facilitation of RR-ToT in Central Region, so that the experiences and learning from Central RR-ToT can be applied to the other RR-ToTs of four regions. Together with the T5 members, SISM-2 team facilitated/supported all RR-ToTs which were conducted during the Jan/Feb 2016. In total, 158 participants, who came from the all 75 DEOs, were trained in the 5 RR-ToTs.

In all of the 5 RR-ToTs, both facilitators and participants’ attitudes were positive by showing strong interest in the training. Most of them believed that the training objectives were achieved.The refresher training gave a timely opportunity to enrich participants' knowledge and skills on how to guide the schools to work on disaster preparedness planning to which the previous training did not give sufficient attention. During and after the RR-ToTs, some comments repeatedly heard were:

  • The school visit session and interaction with the stakeholders at school are practical and effective.
  • Very well managed training and facilitation, OGs are user-friendly and help us understand and follow the session clearly and easily. We are in need of allocation of some budget for district and RC-level Orientation. Participants’ are committed to conduct District-level orientation in the regular meeting in the district following the action plan prepared in the RR-ToT.
