For five consecutive days Michiel van Herpen and Selina Pelupessy (trainers at the Dutch Probation Service) have been training 14 Indonesian senior officials on multiple skills such as knowledge on theories behind probation work, communication with clients and case analysis.

After the opening speeches from Indonesian Probation Service, the Embassy and Nuffic NESO, the staff immediately immersed themselves into theories and principles on probation work. The next few days the training focused on a case study. The training ended with presentations on how the staff analyses the case, with regards to what has been learned during the training. The TMT is part of the broader peer-to-peer cooperation that is being developed between Dutch and Indonesian Probation Services.
