The Head of the Civil Service of the Federation (HoCSF), Mrs. Winifred Oyo-Ita, has said that the findings of a survey showed that civil servants’ skills deficiency was alarming, hence the need for training and retraining to address the deficiencies.

She made the Tuesday in Abuja while unveiling the findings of the Training Needs Assessment, (TNA) at a meeting with the Chief Executive Officers of Manpower Development Institutions, (MDIs).

The TNA survey was administered on 1,076 civil servants between grade levels 7-17, out of which 670 responded.

She said the earlier training accorded to civil servants did not meet the peculiar needs of the public service.

She said that a Structured Assessment-Based Training Programme (SMAT-P), and Leadership Enhancement and Development Programme (LEAD-P), both of which are targeted at training at least 25,000 civil servants by 2020, will kick off in May.

“A lot of civil servants after the initial training they get when coming in, they are left like that. Even when they are promoted, they are not further trained,” she said.
