People Development Centre: Overview
PEOPLE DEVELOPMENT CENTRE (PDC)
Historically the PDC training centre was known as Aids Training Information and Counselling Centre (ATICC) and was mostly responsible for HAST related training of facility counselors and limited HIV/AIDS STI and TB (HAST) related clinical training for nurses.
The ATICC was subsequently identified to fulfill the function of a Regional Training Centre for the Western Cape to address the broader need for the training of health care workers. A transitional process therefore commenced to broaden the service scope of ATICC and the training centre has also been absorbed into the Directorate:People Development
ROLE OF THE PEOPLE DEVELOPMENT CENTRE
The People Development Centre strives to be a centre of excellence that improves the skills set of health care workers and health care professionals by offering competency bases non-formal training in order to ultimately improve the services rendered to clients of the Department of Health.
