Job Training Course for Supervisors (Introduction)

Training and capacity building of ICDS functionaries is one of the most vital components of ICDS programme and is accredited as a key factor in successful implementation of the programme. A supervisor is responsible for guiding an AWW in planning and organizing the delivery of ICDS   services at AWC to various beneficiaries and also give on the spot guidance and training as and when required. A Supervisor acts as a mediator between the CDPO and an AWW. He/She is a support and a guide for an AWW. It is to be kept in mind that a Supervisor when visits to an AWC does not exercise his/her duty as an inspector but as a supervising officer, that is guide & correct an AWW in doing her duty.

The syllabus for Job Training Course (JTC) for supervisors has been developed keeping in view the role, job responsibilities, qualifications and skills required by supervisors as a guiding support for the AWW. A learner and resource person should be aware of the current information about ICDS programme. The content will help the Supervisors provide supervised supervision, act as teachers and help in the field. This course can be accessed by not only supervisors, who are currently in the job but also by anyone who is an ICDS trainer such as MLTC/AWTCs Instructors, CDPOs, Post Graduates in Home Science, Public Health and Social Sciences with specialization in Women/Child related programmes.

For the Supervisors there will be a contact program to be held at NIPCCD or its Regional Centers for hands on supervised training to enhance the knowledge of the functionaries. However, for the trainers, different contact programs will be held so that they are able to train the ICDS functionaries to carry out their jobs effectively and provide supportive supervision. The working Supervisors would be eligible for Supervisor JTC certificate while the trainers would be given Training of Trainers – ICDS Certificate after the contact programme.
