how to apply
All the Centre's regular courses are open to candidates with grants or with their own sources of funding. These candidates should apply directly to the Centre. Training courses under the Workers' Activities Programme or the Employers' Activities Programme are by invitation. Additional candidates paying an appropriate fee may be accepted subject to the approval of the Secretary of the Workers' Group or of the Employers' Group of the ILO Governing Body.
The application procedure enables us to match your needs to our courses and thus ensure that you get maximum benefit from your investment. It is therefore important to specify your language skills, job experience and/or academic background in your application.
To apply for a course, you must:
- note the details of your chosen course (title, course number and dates). If you don't have these, please get them from the course calendar;
- send an e-mail to the unit running the course or complete the online registration form (where available).
Successful candidates will be notified.
Should you require any general information regarding the Centre or courses, contact our Participants’ Admissions and Travel Unit via e-mail: firstname.lastname@example.org.
For each activity on the calendar, the fee comprises a tuition cost and a subsistence cost. The costs are subject to change.
Tuition costs cover: course preparation, implementation and evaluation; training materials and books; the use of training facilities and support services, including online resources. For residential courses, they also cover emergency medical insurance. Some courses also include a study tour.
Subsistence costs cover:
- For courses in Turin: full board and lodging on the Centre's campus; laundry (for courses longer than one week); local study visits (when foreseen); a supplement for additional travel and living expenses during study tours (when foreseen).
- For courses outside Turin: full board and lodging, insurance and incidentals, depending on the facilities available at the course venue.
The figures quoted do not include the cost of travel between the participant's home country and the course venue.
Participants must ensure that they have a valid passport and appropriate visa for the country in which the course is held, for any country in which a transit or stopover to or from the course venue is required, and for all countries in which study tours are scheduled as part of the programme (general information about visas available here).
The cost of the visa, airport taxes, internal travel in the participant's home country and unauthorized stopovers is not covered.
