The Ministry of Foreign Affairs in cooperation with the Chancellery of the Prime Minister of Poland and the National School of Public Administration holds an internship in the field of civil service under the Eastern Partnership Academy of Public Administration.
Between 30 November and 11 December 2015, 16 officials from six Eastern Partnership countries: Armenia, Azerbaijan, Belarus, Georgia, Moldova, and Ukraine, will serve as interns in the units responsible for managing human resources at Polish ministries and governmental administration offices.
The objective of the training is to facilitate the human resources management system in the Eastern Partnership countries by familiarizing the participants with the Polish experiences and best practices in the area of HR policy. During their two-week stay, the interns will learn the organisational structure, the objectives and the main goals of the office they were allocated to. They will learn the principles and the procedures of the functioning of the general director’s office and the units responsible for HR policy, and for implementing HR management standards. As observers, interns will be able to monitor selected HR processes, e.g. in the area of recruitment, induction for work, drawing up individual professional development plans, drawing up reports, motivation, terminating the employment relationship.
The training also offers an opportunity of direct contacts between the officials from the Eastern Partnership countries and their counterparts in Poland, as well as of initiating bilateral cooperation at the working level.
