SEARCA's participation in the SEAMEO staff exchange program involves hosting of visiting staff from other SEAMEO centers and sending SEARCA staff to other SEAMEO centers. These are coordinated by the Human Resources Management Unit (HRMU) under its Staff Development Program.
Such staff exchange visits provide opportunities for the participants to broaden their knowledge and exchange best practices and experiences in their particular discipline or areas of expertise. The program also serves as a ground to build stronger linkages and strengthen inter-center collaboration among SEAMEO centers.
The RECFON contingent was briefed on SEARCA's programs and activities, particularly knowledge management, administration of scholarship programs, short-term training, publication and information dissemination, and network and linkages. They were also given an overview of the Center's administrative support services including finance operations, human resource management, information technology, facilities operations and general services (maintenance and security).
