Staff from provincial courts in the country will be receiving more training in the coming years in order to upskill them to face latest developments and challenges and continue promoting access to justice.
PNG Centre for Judicial Excellence Executive Director Dr. John Carey says there will be more training over the next few years that will assist them to improve their quality of life and upskill their performance to further provide access to justice.
Speaking during a recent training in Lae, Dr Carey told staff from both the District and National Courts that PNGCJE is now reaching out to the provinces with training modules and would be delivering more trainings to provincial courts in the coming years.
A total of 36 court staff, from both the National Judicial Staff Services (NJSS) and the Magisterial Services attended the training with high hopes of further professional training in other areas as well.
Lead Facilitator Mr. Gitu Lago conducted the training which was aimed at developing efficient management skills and legal investment ideas to promote financial stability at home so that employees are focused on their jobs in administering justice on time without financial stress.
“I have and will teach how to develop ideas to make money, and how to let your money work for itself and increase your income without you having to skip a day at work,” Mr. Lago said.
“Most of you are crippled with loans. There’s a way to manage your income, repay your loans, start something small, register a business, and become an investor as well. And once you are up there, your money will work for you. This is what I’m teaching.”
The training was a first of its kind for the Lae court staff and most of the participants found it to be of great value.
