Education institutions can improve their training offer when they understand the actual impact of their courses. With this in mind, a Monitoring and Evaluation Workshop was held on 19 October in Jakarta for the leadership of the Indonesian Judicial Training Centre (JTC). The workshop is a new step in the cooperation between JTC and the Netherlands Training and Study Centre for the Judiciary (SSR), as part of the Judicial Sector Support Program (JSSP)*.
The workshop included a morning session about “Monitoring and Evaluation on Training”, delivered by Remco van Tooren (Vice-president of the Board of Directors, SSR). This was followed by an afternoon session on “Monitoring and Evaluation on Organisation”, designed to help accomplish the JTC vision and mission and delivered by SSR Director Tonnie Hulman. SSR Senior course manager Anne Tahapary contributed with a presentation on the benefit and interconnection of monitoring and evaluation for training.
JTC leadership attending the workshop included the Head of the agency, the Head of the Technical Training Centers, the Head of the Leadership and Management Training Center, the Deputy Head of Program and the Deputy Head of Implementation of the two training centers. According to Ibu Nurdjanah, Head of the Training Agency, “This workshop is very useful for our organisation, especially in regards to monitoring and evaluation, where we can improve our instruments to better know the impact of our training”.
This is the first in a series of activities to be conducted by SSR in cooperation with the judicial and prosecutorial training centres in Indonesia in the period 19-29 October 2015.

JSSP is designed to support the Rule of Law in Indonesia, among others by increasing the capacity and competence of judges and prosecutors, through institutional support to the Indonesian judicial and prosecutorial training institutes.
