Education, Training, and Development

Program Management

Curriculum Guideline Four

Education, Training, and Development is not an end unto itself.  Rather, it supports court accountability for its core responsibilities and desired future.  Judicial branch education must be aligned with the court, its mission, vision, structure, and, very importantly, its internal workflows.  Linkage to human resources policy and practice is critical.  Quality judicial branch education is more likely when the court and its judicial branch education programs are well managed.
