Profile

 

      

Established in 2011 as an integral division of the Legislature Secretariat, the Centre for Parliamentary Studies and Training (CPST) is the premier training body providing opportunities for systematic study and training in various disciplines of parliamentary institutions, processes and procedures to the Legislators and officials and all stake holders of parliamentary democracy.

Training and Development helps in optimizing the utilization of human resource that further helps the staff to achieve the organizational goals as well as their individual goals. Training is essential to provide an opportunity and broad structure for the development of human resources' technical and behavioral skills in an organization. It also helps the employees in attaining personal growth. It helps to expand the horizons of human intellect and the overall personality of the employees. Training and Development helps in inculcating a sense of team work, team spirit, and inter-team collaborations. It helps in creating the right learning culture within the organization.  Training and Development helps in creating the healthy working environment. It helps to build good intra institutional  relationships so that individual goals align with organizational goals.

Organisations need staff at all levels to be more self-sufficient, resourceful, creative and autonomous. It is a challenge for any organisation of repute to  develop greater confidence, initiative, solutions-finding, and problem-solving capabilities among their human resource . This behaviour enables staff to operate at higher strategic level, which makes their organizations more productive and competitive. People's efforts produce bigger results. It's what all organizations strive to achieve by focussing on developing the person, not the skills.

   Performance and capability are ultimately dependent on people's attitude and emotional maturity. It is mandatory for any organisation to provide a platform for trust, 'emotional contracting' with the organisation, and subsequent skills/process/knowledge development relevant to managing higher responsibilities and roles .

Training and Development is the framework for helping employees to develop their personal and organizational skills, knowledge, and abilities. The focus of all aspects of Human Resource Development is on developing the most superior workforce so that the organization and individual employees can accomplish their work goals in service to customers. Employees will always want to develop career-enhancing skills, which will always lead to employee motivation and retention. There is no doubt that a well trained and developed staff will be a valuable asset to the organisation and thereby increasing the chances of his efficiency in discharging his or her duties.It is very essential for all staff and helps in building career positioning and preparing staff for greater challenges.

The CPST has embarked upon various programmes of training in Parliamentary and Legislative fields, thus imparting professionalism, expertise and orientation to those who actually work for the parliamentary system. The CPST organises various programmes to help the legislators acquire deeper and broader understanding of complex national and global issues and to impart the much needed direct exposure to the environment, culture and traditions of parliamentary institutions so as to enable them to appreciate better the nature of their role and place in the overall context of parliamentary system, leading to a more informed response to their work in relation to Legislature.

         The CPST aims to sharpen the functional skills of the officials working in the Secretariats of Parliament and State developing the right attitudes and qualities essential in parliamentary officials, for example, a sense of dedication in service, precision and promptness, objectivity of approach, highest respect for the representatives of the people and unfailing courtesy.

         The CPST aims to encourage the Members and the general public to learn the principles and practice of democratic decision-making and promote collaboration and professional development among parliamentarians .

Aims and Objectives 

        Centre for Parliamentary Studies and Training of the Kerala Legislature aims to  provide Legislators, Legislature staff and other stake holders of parliamentary democracy with institutionalized opportunities for systematic training in the various disciplines of parliamentary institutions, processes and procedures.

        Governments all over the world are seeking innovative modes and manners to improve delivery of services The imperative of appropriate training and capacity building of personnel working in any organization has increasingly been recognized the world over in recent decades. Such training helps to improve the effectiveness of the organization and enhance the efficiency of the available manpower, besides enabling optimum utilization of the human resources.

            In an era of professional specialization, organizations and institutions have laid special emphasis on institutional arrangements for imparting requisite training of their personnel.  In-house training, deputing personnel for training in recognized institutions, attachment with professional training institutions, etc. have become important components of augmentation of the professional capabilities of officers and staff of organizations everywhere. Induction Courses, Foundation Courses, Refresher Programmes, Orientation Programmes, etc. have emerged as integral to holistic capacity building of personnel in all organizations.

       Legislators of today have varied functions to perform, apart from their conventional representational role, more so in the context of the Legislature itself evolving as a multi-functional institution. Like any other organization, in the case of democratic institutions too, officers and staff working in the Legislative Bodies require training and exposure to acquaint themselves with the latest developments, so that they can assist elected representatives to perform their manifold roles efficaciously.

        Legislators have to be well-versed with issues like the primacy of Legislature in a democratic polity, procedural mechanisms available to them to raise matters on the floor of the House, practices and procedures of the Legislature Committees, privileges of members and the House, conventions of the House, traditions and etiquette, etc., if they have to emerge as effective representatives. They also have to be thoroughly familiar with the legislative and budgetary processes, Legislature-Executive relations and the relationship among the Organs of State. Besides, they have to have a sound understanding of the functional dynamics of parliamentary institutions, how to secure Executive accountability to the Legislature in all its manifestations and the pulls and pressures of democratic politics.

        All these call for continuous efforts to facilitate capacity building among members of Legislature, besides Legislature staff. This becomes all the more important in an increasingly information-driven world order wherein the utmost emphasis has to be laid on the development of informed legislators and legislature officials who can adequately support them.

         Since effective and efficient working of Legislature calls for constant upgrading of the skills of the Legislature staff in particular, there is a need for their extensive as well as intensive training. Such measures will assist Members of Legislature and Legislature staff to maintain the highest standards of professional excellence.

        There are various stakeholders who make a parliamentary democracy work successfully. Besides Members and Legislature staff, these stakeholders include the media, the Civil Service, the academic community, including students, civil society and the citizens at large. In the course of its evolution, parliamentary democracy has evolved several highly specialized procedures and processes, of which legislators, policy-makers, administrators and others should have a good knowledge.

In a parliamentary democratic set up, it is only the institution of Legislature, which can impart such knowledge to all stakeholders of democracy. Thus, the onerous task of conducting relevant studies and enabling the required orientation and training of the stakeholders falls on the Legislature itself.

Certificate Course in Parliamentary Practice and Procedure

                INTRODUCTION

                Indian parliamentary democracy has no match in the world and democratic values are part and parcel of the life of the common man in India. A democratic parliament  will seek to foster a vibrant civil society and to work closely with it in finding solutions to problems facing the country and in improving the quality and relevance of legislation.  Informing citizens about the work of parliament is not just a concern for the fourth estate, but  a responsibility of parliaments themselves. The Open and Distance Learning System with its inherent flexibility and affordability has emerged as an important mode for providing education and awareness to various sections of the society in the present day educational scenario.

      CONTACT CLASSES

      • Personal Contact Programmes (PCPs) shall ordinarily be arranged by the CPST to facilitate  interaction between the learners and subject experts, who give due academic counselling to the learners.
      • Contact class centers shall ordinarily be at Thiruvananthapuram, Ernakulam and Kozhikode or as decided by the CPST. Days (5-6 in total) of contact classes will be notified on the official website as well as via SMS to registered mobile numbers of learners.

      STUDY MATERIALS

                  Printed study materials are supplied to the learners. While these Self Learning Materials (SLMs) give the learners the required academic guidance, learners are advised to supplement their reading at home by thoroughly going through the books suggested for reading. Study materials for the Course shall be prepared and circulated by the CPST.

      • Examinations will be conducted at the end of the course and the centre of examination shall ordinarily be at Thiruvananthapuram, Ernakulam and Kozhikode.
