Towards Common Values and Culture
challenges and solutions in developing the basic training of the European border and coast standing corps category 1 in pandemic crisis
The development of the Basic Training for the European Border and Coast Guard Standing Corps was in the final stage when the pandemic crises hit all of us dramatically in early 2020, and forced to find alternative solutions in carrying out the training in new circumstances. Urgent actions were needed to re-design the implementation of the Basic Training, as the situation at the external borders of the EU did not allow to compromise the rapid establishment of the Standing Corps. The good practices and lessons learnt will certainly play a key role when establishing the “new normal” in training and education. Furthermore, the leading role of the European Border and Coast Guard Agency (Frontex) in shaping common values and culture of the new formation is emphasized. The conference bulletin paper presents pragmatic oriented approach and explores the training and education solutions chosen at the time when the pandemic hit this activity and forced to change the training methods immediately and significantly.
