ever increasing advancements in employment, health and safety and company law,
the role of directors is becoming more and more complex and onerous. The voluntary
role of Board members is highly valued by individual Centres as well as by IACTO.
In order to support the work of the Boards, IACTO will be providing in centre
customised training programmes to Boards to support them in their role and function.
Directors Training may include:
Role and Function, Board Recruitment, Board Planning
and Evaluation, Board Manual, Productive Meetings
and others as needed, the topics covered will depend
on the needs of the individual Board and other areas
may be provided on request.
General Management Training
We are currently in the process of negotiating a Community
Training Centre employee handbook. The handbook will
be supported by a comprehensive set of management
guidelines. As a support to the management team, IACTO
will provide training on matters related to the employment
relationship, the handling of issues with employees
and training for the recruitment panel. In addition
Centres may request training on specific issues.
Policies & Procedures
In addition to the general management training, we
will be available to provide training to the CTC team
on introduction of the employee handbook. The ½
day session is intended to support the introduction
of the employee handbook by providing clear and consistent
information to the management and staff of the centre.
Performance Management & Development
In accordance with the Sustaining Progress Agreement,
the Community Training Centre network is required
to establish and implement a Performance Management
System. This is currently under development and further
details will be available in the weeks ahead. Training
will support the introduction of the system.

Agreements reached between IACTO, SIPTU and FAS at
national level apply equally to all Boards and staff
of community training centres.
