1 The WMO Education and Training Programme
World Meteorological Organization Working together in weather, climate and water WMO The WMO Education and Training Programme

2 Overview Aspiration Expected Results etc Standards
Enhancing ETR for Members Enhancing Technical Training Enhancing Management Training EC Panel Capacity Development ETR Office

3 What is the ETRP doing? Setting education and training Standards Pro-actively assisting the TCs in development of job competencies Working with training institutes to provide more training opportunities and resources Encouraging the use of Distance Learning Increasing HR development activities

4 ETRP in 2016 Fellowships Training More with alternative funding
Standards implemented Additional training partners Other WMO programmes utilising RTC facilities and supporting development of new resources E-learning a normal part of training delivery

5 Strengthening Capacity Building
ETRP contributes to WMO Expected Result 6 Enhanced capabilities of NMHSs, in particular in developing and least developed countries, to fulfill their mandates Strategic Thrust 3 Strengthening Capacity Building Protection of life and property Sustainable use of natural resources and environment Economic well being

6 ETRP expected to support 2012 – 2015 WMO priorities
Global Framework for Climate Services (GFCS) WIGOS Climate Disaster Risk Reduction Weather Aviation Marine….. WIS as a delivery and data discovery system Capacity development: policy, facilities, personnel

7 ETRP activity areas Enhancing capabilities of NMHS managers
WMO Enhancing capabilities of NMHS managers KO 6.2 & 6.3 Setting Standards and guidelines for initial ETR KO 6.2 & 6.3 Enhanced capabilities of NMHSs to fulfill their mandates Enhancing technical capabilities KO 6.2 & 6.3 Enhancing capabilities in education and training KO 6.2 & 6.3

8 ETRP facts Support US 200k USD – NCEP fellowships UK
60k GBP - fellowships China Training courses and In kind – fellowships Russia In kind – fellowships Turkey Training courses Japan VCP-F 140k chf RTC hosts In kind fellowships Philippines Fellowships Australia Fellowship(s) Various Inkind through active panel member input Canada Secondment of Kent Johnson to support Aviation activities Hong Kong China Training course (every two years) Korea Training course?

9 This shows which groups are involved in each of the three training areas (technical training, management training and capacity development of the Education and training institutions). The height of the bars is indicative only

10 Setting Standards

11 Bodies reponsible for setting initial and ongoing ETR requirements?
EC-Panel Initial qualifications Coordination on ETR matters across the TCs CBS TCs responsible for developing specialist qualifications andcompetencies in their domains of expertise (EC-62) All programmes under WWW plus some of Applications of Meteorology CAeM Aeronautical Meteorology CHy Hydrology and water resources CCL Climate CAS Global Atmospheric Watch, GCOS CIMO Observations CAgM Agricultural meteorology JCOMM Marine and oceanography

12 Setting Standards EC-Panel set the Standards for the initial training of Meteorologists and Meteorological Technical Officers Use the COCOM to brainstorm / test ideas TC’s set the Guidelines / Standards for the subject domains under their authority. Examples: aeronautical meteorology, climate, marine meteorology EC-Panel to assist the TC’s Getting some buy-in from the TCs but for many of them qualifications and competencies low priority

13 Enhancing Member ETR capabilities

14 Enhancing ETR capabilities
Oversee and support the RTCs Advertise and support Members to attend RTC activities Providing train-the-trainer workshops and advice Provision of publications and guidelines Support for Members to attend ETR related events (face-to-face and online) Advocating for provision of resources and sharing of resources Links to “Roles and Operations of NMHSs” Not discussed Some RTCs very active, others dead-loss. Need to revisit RTCs? Trainer competencies will be useful NWS/COMET very good partners

15 2012 to 2016 Training Year Activity 2011 CALMET
HRD course in the Philipinnes Train-the-Trainer in Nairobi 2012 Train-the-Trainer in South America (Peru?) Managers of Training Institute’s (????) Publication of new Standards & Guidelines HRD course 2013 Train-the-Trainer in Asia / Pacific Education and Training Symposium (venue?) Curriculum Development Workshop on Climate (????) Publication of trainers manual 2014 Train-the-Trainer in Europe 2015 Train-the-Trainer in Africa Not discussed

16 Enhancing Technical Capabilities

17 Enhancing Technical Capabilities
Negotiate with RTCs and potential donors Work with partners such as EUMETCAL and COMET Provide advice to WMO Technical Departments Cross-coordination with Technical Departments Work with TCs on development and implementation of competencies Provide funding to Technical Departments Fellowship Programme fits in here Not discussed Advocating for provision of resources and sharing of resources Starting to get results from negotiations with RTCs (Turkey, China) and cross coordination with Departments. Still siloed though

18 Enhancing Management Capabilities

19 Enhancing Management Capabilities
Working with the LDCR and Regional Programme to deliver workshops that support strategic planning ….. Linking to the “Roles and Operations of NMHSs” and anticipating Panel looking at a Capability Framework at next session. Coordinating with UK, Spain and France on their management courses PR Familiarisation visits come under this Not discussed Capability framework will give this much more focus. Links with LDCR and Regional Programmes tentative but firming

20 EC Panel of Experts on ETR

21 Congress Decisions Revised definition of Meteorologist and Meteorological Technician Agreed on new BIP-M and BIP-MT Standards Agreed on new guidelines to support the implementation of the Standards Continued the EC Panel of Experts on Education and Training Not discussed

22 Implications for ETRP of Congress decisions
Severed the link between jobs and classifications. Now up to each Member who does what tasks WMO 258 is being phased out by 1 Dec ETR Standards in Section B4 of WMO Technical Regulations Vol 1, publication 49 Not discussed

23 Expectations of ETRP due to Congress decisions
Expected to support the implementation of the GFCS through education and training in climate services Expected to increase provision of management training Expected to assist implementation of WIS / WIGOS through training in meta-data, network management, quality control, QMS ….

24 EC Panel possible topics
March 2012 – New Zealand /Geneva / New Delhi? Climate services - Human Resource Development Use of ISO standard for accrediting non university training institutions Trainer competencies document Symposium in 2013 HRD capability framework RTC reviews Task Team on Distance Learning WMO Cloud Atlas and Global Satellite Manual Clarifying the WMO ETR cycle and who is responsible for which components and how to bring it all together

25 Opportunities and Challenges for the ETRP / Panel
Reform proposals for the EC WG on Capacity Development and how this could support / impact upon the work of the Panel Member interest in the Panel Making the most of available resources (staff and funds)

26 Panel member Suggested Role David Grimes Link to EC, Bureau
Kent Johnson (Canada) Link to CAeM / Competencies Tim Spangler (US) Link to Distance Learning Vilma Castro (Costa Rica) Link to RA IV / Distance Learning Claudia Campetella (Argentina) Link to RA III Winifred Jordaan (South Africa) Link to RA I Benoit Sarr (Niger) Link to CAgM Julius Wellens-Mensah (Ghana) Link to Chy Ian Lisk (UK) Link to CAeM Francois Lalaurette (France) Link to RA VI Meihua Wang (China) Link to RA II Biswajit Mukhopahyay (India) Chris Webster (New Zealand) Link to RA V Enric Aguillar (Spain) Link to CCL / GFCS Poland – self funded Korea – self funded Indonesia – self funded Just touched upon but he was supportive to the concept. We had spoken about this earlier in the meeting when looking at how we get input from the various bodies
