SEAQIL Designs Its Third FYDP

Why does the Centre design its Five-Year Development Plan (FYDP)? The Centre needs to develop a document that describes its direction and goals. Thus, it is necessary for the Centre to tailor its upcoming programmes and activities to the document. This is to ensure that the Centre, in the next five years (2020/2021-2024/2025), operates in compliance with its functions.

The resource persons, the Centre Director and staff take an official picture prior to the workshop.

The Centre, accordingly, held a workshop on 2–4 July 2018 to design its third FYDP. In the workshop, the Centre Director directed 24 Centre staff to prepare the document in accordance with the National Medium Term Development Plan—Rencana Pembangunan Jangka Menengah (RPJMN). Based on his direction, the staff acknowledged that the Centre, in the said fiscal-year period, aimed to enhance students’ competence by implementing HOTS teaching and 21st Century Curriculum. Further, he explained that the Centre’s target programmes, in the third FYDP, would focus on concept validation to produce training module. He, then, briefly alluded to the programmes which should be included in the document.

The Centre invited two other experts to assist the Centre staff, aside from the Centre Director. They were Dr Cyti Daniela Aruan (Biro Perencanaan dan Kerja Sama Luar Negeri, Kementerian Pendidikan dan Kebudayaan, Jakarta) and Ms Ni Wayan Suwithi (PPPPTK Bisnis dan Pariwisata, Depok). Dr Cyti Daniela Aruan described the procedures and progress made by the ministry in developing the document for Fiscal Year 2020-2024. Ms Ni Wayan Suwithi enlightened the Centre staff on all matters related to FYDP such as its types and models.

After the experts’ presentation, the Centre Deputy Directors engaged the staff in a discussion to formulate a road map of the Centre’s programmes for Fiscal Year 2020/2021-2024/2025. Upon completing the road map, they did analyses on the Centre’s Strengths, Weaknesses, Opportunities, Threats (SWOT) and on the Centre’s performance as well as achievement in the previous five-year period.

With the assistance of the resource persons, the staff were able to produce a rough draft of the document at the end of the workshop. The Centre expects to have the complete and final draft of the document in 2019.
