The Guidelines on Training in the Asylum Process have been developed within the framework of the Pilot Project 4 of the Prague Process Targeted Initiative. The purpose of the document is to direct and assist governments and administrations in developing training programmes for staff working within the asylum process. The paper focuses on the impact of training on work efficiency and provides recommendations on how to design and manage high-quality and sustainable training programmes.
The Guidelines are divided into seven chapters. A brief introduction sets a background to the very current issue of asylum and international protection. The second chapter elaborates on the purpose of the Guidelines in more detail. Further, in the next segment the reader is presented with different topics that training could cover. The fourth chapter focuses on different methods of training and critically examines their assets and drawbacks. The fifth chapter provides advice on how to efficiently plan a national training programme. Finally, the last section includes examples of national road maps drafted as part of this project. In each chapter conclusions have been made. These taken together from the Prague Process Guidelines on training in the asylum process – approaches to achieve quality.
