The Institute of Secretariat Training and Management (ISTM) was established in the year 1948 and its vision is to be centre of excellence in the area of secretariat training and management. ISTM focuses on overall development of the participants. Emerging training techniques are used for improving performance and there is a constant attempt to innovate.
It is an honor and a privilege to be the Director of ISTM the - Institute that stands for excellence and continuously strives to set the highest professional standards. The Institute has specialized in facilitating the skill development and attitude modification for improving organizational effectiveness. ISTM imparts training for the officers to make them committed, motivated and encourages overall growth of an officer by inculcating human values and concerns of society and environment through theme- based training programmes. Our strength is based on the rich experience of our faculty which makes our training programme, research & consultancy work unique, enriching and action-oriented.
ISTM is acknowledged as an Institute which provides quality training with modern training techniques providing participants a learning environment which allows them opportunities to reach their fullest potential; away from an environment which would produce a mechanical mindset emphasizing only on memory retention of course contents, without appreciating their application and understanding for improving their job performance. To do so, ISTM strives to use learner-centric and interactive methods like Case Studies, Group Discussions, Brain Storming etc.
In the modern days governance has to be citizen centric, for which developing the capacity and competence of the officers to serve the society effectively is essential. Our foundational training programmes aim at inculcating the professional values to make the officers confident and competent with a high degree of devotion to handle their task in their organization. We invite eminent personalities from various spheres to expose the participants to all facets of governance in and outside government.
I welcome you all to get the benefit of ISTMs professional competence and share your experiences at the Institute of Secretariat Training and Management for creating mutually enriching learning environment.
