On the meeting of working group were discussed the following problems:

  • progressive experience of public administration studies accumulated through international practice and networking;

The working group specified certain problems and suggested solutions to them. First of all, it was decided that the content of the public administration studies has to be relevant to the new requirements, predetermined by internationalisation and networking and prospects of co-operation between the EU and other countries.

 

Moreover, education processes of public administration studies and in-service training have to be increasingly internationalised. It is essential to develop international networks of Centres and Institutions for civil servants and public administration specialists’ training, studies and in-service training, and also to develop distance-learning technologies and, based on that, to internationalise the processes of training, studies and in-service training.

  • progressive experience of public servant’s training accumulated through international practice;
  • establishment and development of public servants training systems, development and implementation of national and international strategies for improvement of such systems.

It was decided, that the content of the training and in-service training has to be relevat to the new requirements, pre-determined by EU enlargement and prospects of cooperation between EU and other countries. The quality of training and in-service training has to comply with the international standards and the latest requirements. It is therefore necessary to establish an efficient system of certification for training programmes, to develop and implement highly dynamic systems of criteria for international certification of the training and in-service training programmes for civil servants and public administration specialists in all countries of the EU, as well as third countries.


Processes of trainigand in-service traning ahve to be increasingly internationalised: training, studies and in-service traning reqire involvement of foreign lectures and trainers: it is essential to develop international networks of centres and institutions for civil servants and public administration specialists training, studies and in-service training; it is essential to develop distance-learning technologies and, based on that, to internationalize processes of training, studies and in-service training. It is necessary to conduct extensive scientific research in the area of training, studies and in-service training for civil servants and public administration specialists and to initiate and carry out comparative research in the actual quality of training and in-service training systems.
