INTENSIVE FIELD TRAININGS (IFT)
 

GI’s major focus is on designing, developing and conducting training programs to equip managers with appropriate knowledge, skills and attitudes required for effectively responding to needs of natural resources and development sector. IFT programs combine personal experience with case studies and problem solving exercises that give the participants the maximum benefit of learnings through individual exchanges. Needless to say, the academic concepts are reinforced through interactive learning-cum-discussions, business games and indoor/outdoor activities. Participants do have the benefit of interacting with eminent academicians, policy makers and sector leaders. GI uses leadership simulations to give grassroots leaders a complete picture of their performance and to help them identify strengths and areas for improvement as well as emphasize on action planning and follow-up to ensure that new skills can be applied immediately on the job.

Guidelines
Application Form

Project implementing agencies and some personnel of resource agencies often lack necessary skills of documenting and reporting their own achievements in the projects. Analyzing the situations, the processes of interventions made and the achievements/ outputs is difficult task for the project personnel. During the implementation of development projects various case studies and success stories generate that can not only reveal the processes of execution but also give rise to many learnings. But these case studies and success stories remain undocumented due to the lack of necessary skills at the part of organization. Residential training imparts skills of documenting the processes involved during the implementation of projects, preparing varied types of documents e.g. quarterly/six-monthly progress reports, annual report of organization, folder, photo book, etc. Training program will also impart skills of how to research for and write the case studies and success stories.
