Gender Adviser and Gender Focal Point Training Course - Strategic Training Framework and Curriculum
The training course on Gender Advisers (GENAD) and Gender Focal Points (GFP) in the Jordanian security sector is an essential element of developing the capacity of Jordanian Armed Forces (JAF) and Public Security Directorate (PSD) personnel to mainstream gender across all security sector activities. This Strategic Training framework (STF) is based on best practice gender training from various international organizations, including but not limited to the United Nations (UN), North Atlantic Treaty Organisation (NATO), the European Institute for Gender Equality (EIGE), and the Geneva Centre for Democratic Control of Armed Forces (DCAF). The course provides the students with a background of frameworks and guidelines regulating gender in the military as well as the skills and competence required to act in an advisory role. Developed within the framework of the Jordanian National Action Plan on UN Security Council resolution 1325 (JONAP) on Women, Peace and Security, this publication is generously supported by the Governments of Canada, Finland, Norway, Spain and the United Kingdom.
