Senegal Partners with UN-CHK to Train Public Sector Workers

(Ecofin Agency) - The Senegalese government has launched an initiative to modernize its public services, necessitating an update in the skills of state workers.

On July 1, Senegal’s Cheikh Hamidou Kane Digital University (UN-CHK) and the Ministry of Public Service and Public Sector Reform (MFPRSP) signed a partnership agreement to train state employees. Under this agreement, these employees will participate in a skills enhancement program offered by the university.

This collaboration addresses the government's need for a qualified workforce in public administration and aims to modernize public services. "This agreement is part of the modernization of the public sector to increase productivity and performance of the administration and improve the quality of services provided to users," the ministry stated. The ministry is also currently surveying the quality of public services.

In implementing the agreement, the ministry will act as a liaison between the employees needing training and the university. The MFPRSP will identify the training needs of public sector workers.

UN-CHK will then develop a training plan in these areas and design modules corresponding to the identified needs. Additionally, the university will provide its expertise in digital transformation to assist the MFPRSP in implementing public sector reforms and digitalizing public services, among other initiatives.
