April 10, 2012
The Induction Training for Local Government Operations Officers (LGOO) is an integral program of DILG to further strengthen its internal and organizational competencies critical in helping its clients address its service delivery functions.
The Induction Training for new /untrained LGOOs is now on its 47th Batch and is being held at the St. John the Evangelist School of Theology in Palo, Leyte. It aims to fully capacitate its new/untrained LGOOs II to enable them to provide all sorts of technical assistance to LGUs in support of the Department’s mandate.
To respond to training requirements set by the Local Government Academy, DILG Regional Management formed a Training Management Team and designated the corresponding facilitators, secretariat and documentors for the different modules.
The training is composed of several Components:
Component 1 was conducted for two weeks last March 2012 and covered a General Orientation of the history and evolution, mandate, vision and mission, outcome framework and key programs.
Component II is divided into two Phases. The first Phase or Center Training is a two-month live-in training consisting of seven modules, ranging from 1) Effective Interpersonal Relations and Team Development; 2) DILG and its Role in Local Governance; 3) Dynamics of Local Governance; 4) Assessment of LGU Operations and Performance; 5) Project Preparation, Networking and Social Marketing; 6) Managing Learning Events; and 7) Program Monitoring and Evaluation.
The second phase or Field Immersion (Supervised Field Practice) is the application phase where the trainees will be assigned in a Municipality or City and shall implement their Action Plans which they prepared at the end of the Center Training.
Component III (Competency Assessment) is where trainees who have successfully completed the requirements of the previous Components are validated for certification through a paper and pencil test and simulated exercises and interviews to be conducted by a team with extensive knowledge in local governance.
Those who pass Component III as certified by the assessment team shall be issued a Certificate of Completion (Component 4) by the Local Government Academy (LGA) which shall make them eligible for promotion to a higher LGOO position.
There are 22 trainees comprising the 47th Batch in Eastern Visayas.
