  3. Rationale for Introducing the Systematic Approach to Training (SAT)- Cycle and Decentralized Training Cascades for PRIs in Rajasthan • For customized/need-based responsive training corresponding to entry behaviour of PRIs (w.r.t. knowledge, skills and attitudes- existing & desired) • To equip PRIs for effective role-performance with a view for improving local self governance • Inclusive multi-stakeholder TNA-Workshops for arriving at stakeholder needs • Need-based module and material development to guide state-wide training of PRIs with a uniform curriculum for maintaining optimal quality of content and delivery • Training a strong cadre of trainers to deliver direct training to PRIs as Decentralized cascades • Decentralized training- a time and cost effective alternative to ensure fast outreach and ensuring ‘Training for All’- in the PRI-Sector: with more than 1.25 lac functionaries to be trained every 5 years • Assessing training impact as a strategy for validation of training objectives, content, methodology and outcomes
