How can you make a difference?

UNICEF will a local consultant to join the Child Protection Unit to help develop a training program on OBET for the Philippine National Police Child Protection Policy. The Outcome Based approach towards competency building has been utilized by CP in its separate engagements with the judiciary and its family courts and the multi-disciplinary teams in local government units to increase utility of the diversion process and alternatives to detention in support of the implementation of the Juvenile Justice and Welfare Act. The Outcome Based approach has been assessed by the family courts and local government units to be effective in learning and skills enhancements. The OBET approach allows for a monitoring and evaluation framework to measure application of what was learned.
