Leadership training for Vanuatu police officers

A Senior Leadership Assessment Development Training is currently on at the Vanuatu Police College in Port Vila.

It is a training conducted by the Australian Federal Police (AFP) joint with the Vanuatu Police Force (VPF) Human Resources Team and funded by the Australian Government through the Ministry of Justice.

Australian high Commissioner Jenny Da Rin officially opened the training and highlighted its importance.

The training will be conducted for four days with presenters from the University of the South Pacific, Ministry of Justice, PICP and the Commissioner of the Royal Solomon Islands Police Force.

Some of the newly promoted officers were very fortunate to attend this kind of training to shape future leaders within the VPF.

The training is a unique senior leadership program that is open to applicants from all senior officers in VPF, Police Maritime Wing and Vanuatu Mobile Force at the rank of Inspector and above.

The ADC will assess senior officer leadership skills and capabilities through a series of specially designed exercises using an established set of seven leadership capabilities or competencies.

Officers completing the ADC will have preferred access to available international and national training programmes that supports their leadership development.
