This publication concerns presentation of outcomes of the training of trainers conducted during the implementation of the Twinning Light Project “Setting up the SIRENE Office: Strengthening capacities of SIRENE operators and end users of the Schengen Information System II (CRO SIRENE)“ funded by the EU. This international assistance and support project was implemented throughout 2016 by the Lithuanian Police in cooperation with the beneficiary administration – the Ministry of the Interior of the Republic of Croatia. This research is aimed at making readers familiar with the system and integral parts of qualification improvement process in a police organization.

The mechanism for preparation of instructors within public administration bodies in the EU Member States could be percepted as integral process whereby selected staff members receive initial subject-matter training, deepen their knowledge in advanced subject-matter training, participate in andragogic training sessions, practice their training skills during live training activities, have possibility to compare working procedures in other EU Member States and exchange best practices as well as make use of specific tailor-made methodological tools.

The proposed concept for the training of trainers, which was practically tested by the authors of the research, furthermore intends to contribute to the better commitment and the ownership of the beneficiary organizations with regard to objectives and mandatory results of international projects. The involvement of beneficiary administrations in systematic and demanding approaches (which is proposed in this research) facilitates the sustainability in outcomes of international aid instruments.
