(1) At the 20th session (April 1959: CO-ORDINATION/R.295, paras. 73 and 74) CCAQ considered a suggestion for the introduction of a common basic training programme for persons entering the international civil service. It was doubtful about the effectiveness of such a programme, though some members thought that an experiment might be considered for P-1 and P-2 administrative staff. The Committee asked UNESCO to prepare a study on common training possibilities for submission to the next session.
