Innovation: Decent Work Promotion
The Centre established an in-house financing mechanism in 2012 with the objective of nurturing innovation and research in the training portfolio of the Centre, with an emphasis on internet-support and IT-enhanced learning methods. Over 2012-14, the Fund has supported 19 in-house initiatives with a combined budget of 500,000 Euros.
Together, these initiatives have contributed to the delivery of more and better training and learning services at the Centre. One example of good practice financed by the innovation fund is the project on “Union Training Tools on Decent Work Promotion – ‘Decent Work Cubed’”, targeted at workers’ representatives.
The main objective of this project was to provide workers’ representatives with access to online training resources on decent work.
These online resources include self-guided distance learning courses:
- ‘Starting module on Decent Work’;
- ‘Decent Work Standards’; and
- ‘Gender and Decent Work’.
The platform provides access to a community of practice to exchange experiences and coordinate trade union strategies for action.
