International labour standards are legal instruments that establish basic minimum social standards agreed upon by governments, employers and workers.
They cover all matters related to work and are backed up by a supervisory system designed to deal with any problems in their application at national level. The training activities of the Centre aim to better equip ILO constituents and other ILO stakeholders to promote the ratification of international labour standards and apply and implement them as a means to advance decent work and achieve social justice.

Interview with Ms Cheryl Alphonse, Senior Cooperation Officer at the Ministry of Labour and Human Resources Development of the Republic of Seychelles
The Programme for Employers’ Activities provides training to strengthen employers’ representatives in areas that are strategic for economic growth, governance, development and poverty alleviation.
We believe that employers' and business associations can make significant contributions for sustainable development and therefore help Employers' Organizations around the world to become more representative and effective voices of business.
The Programme for Workers’ Activities is the training arm of the Bureau for Workers' Activities (ACTRAV) of the ILO. The Programme responds to the training needs of workers' organizations through courses, materials, projects and advisory services.
