As part of its Support Staff Skills Development Initiatives, His Majesty’s Secretariat has begun two more courses since the launch of a specialized tailoring course.

A month-long training on Baking and Culinary Arts at NLD Training Institute was inaugurated on September 26, with 20 participants. 

At the launch of the training, Zimpon Wogma Nim Tshering spoke to the participants about the objective of the initiative, which emanated from His Majesty’s Royal Command that civil service agencies must create opportunities for its support staff to learn new and income-generating skills during their period of service. This practice of enabling lifelong learning among employees would serve to give them avenues for generating income later in life, and achieve greater financial security. 

Meanwhile, 22 participants started a three-month driving training from September 22 at Karsel Dawa Driving Training Institute, also as part of the Skilling Initiative. 

In line with the Royal Command to all civil service agencies, HMS is working on facilitating trainings in other areas, which the support staff working with various HMS agencies can choose to join based on their interest. 

The courses are designed to be held after office hours to allow participants to continue their office work without disrupting service delivery.
