Hosted by the College of Justice, Estonian Academy of Security Sciences & Training Center of Justice of Georgia, the Crisis Management Training Program focuses on the development of careful planning, coordination, communication, and adaptability skills, aimed at ensuring the safety and well-being of staff and stakeholders within public institutions.
13 – 14 March 2024 (arrival 12 March, departure 15 March)
The primary objective of this Crisis Management Training Program is to foster a mutual understanding of crisis management approaches in training academies. By equipping the management team with essential skills, our goal is to ensure that your institution remains well-prepared to handle potential crises effectively.
The training program is primarily designed to cater to training academy managers at all organisational levels and other staff members who may potentially serve on the crisis management team of the academy, as well as experts from relevant areas who bring valuable insights and expertise.
The workshop will be rolled out by Ms Irina Bregvadze, a trainer from Georgia with extensive experience in crisis management. The program is designed to enhance your skills in careful planning, coordination, communication, and adaptability – crucial elements for ensuring the safety and well-being of staff and stakeholders within public institutions, specifically Penitentiary Training Academies.
The training module covers following topics:
I. Introduction to Crisis Management
II. Preparing for Crisis
III. Crisis Response
IV. Crisis Communication
V. Continuous Improvement strategy
The training methodology is based on adult learning principles. It combines theoretical knowledge with practical experience, allowing participants to develop the skills and confidence necessary to effectively manage crises and emergencies.
