Trainings & Seminars


JSSP offers a wide variety of specialty seminars and workshops.  The specific topics covered by these seminars and workshops are determined by consulting with the various justice institutions about their specific needs.  Some of the areas in which JSSP employees offer trainings and seminars are standard case filing, budgeting, standard bidding documents, organizational communications, human rights, prevention of human trafficking, and gender justice and equality issues.  Training is most often conducted at the ministry offices, which allows the trainees to easily attend class.   Trainers use a variety of techniques to engage the trainees, including lecture, small group discussion, document sample preparation, etc.  Trainees complete pre- and post-tests that identify the knowledge gained from the training.   Follow-on mentoring helps ensure that theories and skills learned in class are applied.

In addition to designing and executing trainings, JSSP also works with the Education and Training Committees or training staff of the Attorney General’s Office, the Afghan Prosecutors Association (APA), the Ministry of Justice, and the Ministry of Women’s Affairs to build the internal training capacity of these institutions. This includes assisting them with lesson plan and lecture preparation, observing the training, and providing material support.  Transitioning training to fully functional, competently staffed and government-funded in-house training departments is an important goal of the JSSP program.
