The Senior Director of Basic Development and Creative Learning at the Bahrain Institute of Public Administration (BIPA) Mohammed Al Sabaa said that the Institute - based on its leading experience in e-training - launched last year an initiative involving institutes of public administration and administrative development in the GCC in real experience in the field of e-training to create a state of integration among States and stand on the requirements of training and transfer of skills and experience which would help the GCC countries in the decision to adopt and implement e-learning projects.  

Al Sabaa pointed out the proposed idea of converting some of the distance meetings of the Training Committee in the GCC countries to workshops through work teams turning the theoretical aspects to the projects to be tapped.  The first of the initiatives was an idea to prepare and implement joint e-training.  

As regards the way of distribution of project tasks, Al Sabaa said: "The fact that the project is joint project among the institutes of public administration and administrative development in the GCC countries, the Institute of Public Administration in Saudi Arabia - as it is competent in the production of face to face training packages – was tasked to provide a training packages to be converted to an electronic portfolio.  The Saudi Institute proposed a number of training packages among which a training portfolio was selected as it represented the common need for the GCC and skills related to management development.  

The UAE Institute of Public Administration carried out the task of Electronic Imaging of the certain administrative situations included in the training portfolio, has been appoint the Institute of Administrative Development.  The Qatari Institute of Administrative Development and the Civil Service Bureau in Kuwait put together the visual dialogues. The Secretariat of the GCC  was responsible for audio recording of speakers and personalities .  BIPA managed the project, in addition to carrying out the task of developing training portfolio from A to Z.  

Al Sabaa said that, after completion of the model training portfolio (the development of management skills), the experience was discussed at a meeting of directors of public administration institutes which was well received and highly welcomed and praised at the level of the model and the successful experience of the Institute of Public Administration in the Kingdom of Bahrain in the management of the GCC Group. It was agreed to move from development stage to the implementation phase of the experiment in mid September for three weeks with the nomination of ten trainees from incumbents of supervisory positions in the Gulf Cooperation Council (GCC), where the Institute of Public Administration will be responsible for the management of distance training and provide them with the results. The course will also be available to all staff of the Kingdom of Bahrain who can view the details through the eCourses booklet of the Institute of Public Administration.  

It is worth mentioning that the e-training portfolio on the development of management skills is made up of 4 units.  The first unit includes management development in terms of definition, models and forms of development, administrative and regulatory environment, while the second unit consists of modern methods of management development and the most important difficulties facing it. The third is addressing the administrative structure and classifications.   Finally the 4th Unit is addressing the issue of identification of training needs and planning for training.
