JPO Pre-departure Briefings| JPOSC Pre-departure Briefing (Copenhagen) | Other Pre-departure Briefings |
The JPO Service Centre organises on a regular basis a Pre-departure Briefing lasting two days for UNDP JPOs and one day for JPOs from other UN Agencies. This training course takes place at the JPOSC in Copenhagen.
The objective of this briefing is to introduce the JPO to his/her organization and the JPO Programme, and to prepare him/her for the JPO assignment and expected challenges.
It is recommended that JPOs attend the course before they start their assignment.
The curriculum focuses on:
Practical arrangements related to your visit in Copenhagen:
Please ensure to bring some DK/cash to cover the costs of lunch during your visit to the JPOSC (the canteen does not accept credit cards).
The foregoing apply to all JPOs administered by the JPOSC but those funded by Canada, Ireland, Portugal, Saudi Arabia and the United Kingdom.
Some of these countries organise for their JPOs similar induction training courses though. You may want to contact the Donor Government Focal Points at JPOSC for more information.
