Training is one of the strategic cornerstones of the Anti-Fraud Office Prevention Directorate’s mission to help public institutions become more resistant to the risks of corruption.
Training in integrity is key to the process of raising awareness in institutions and making a significant contribution to bringing about change in their ethical organisational culture. Experience shows that training acts as a trigger, an initial thrust in this process which, to become part of the organisation’s culture, requires continuity with further actions that coherently follow the awareness-raising strategy.
Training is also targeted at the acquisition of specialised knowledge in the field of preventing and combating corruption, and at developing and enhancing certain skills in those who participate in the sessions.
The Office ensures training quality by establishing teaching criteria, which it lays down through the training design process and approval of methodologies, or by joining forces with collaborating institutions.
Participation in master’s degrees and professional conferences is an indication of active involvement by the Office in training programmes offered by institutions and organisations with which we share goals and synergies as regards the focus of our work.
We mainly reach out to public servants, with special attention to elected representatives, directors, senior managers and officials who have responsibilities in key areas. Training is aimed at strengthening the integrity of the public institutions where they carry out their professional activities. Other groups may also be included within the scope of our training when their activities have a public character, such as organised society, the young or political parties.
Through training activities with a broad range of formats we set out to reach these communities to share general approaches to the enhancement of institutional integrity and more specific measures for managing risks of corruption.
