This course aims to improve the design and implementation of policies intended to promote job creation by building the capacity of all relevant stakeholders to identify, measure and assess the employment effects of economic, sectoral, trade-related or labour market policies. In particular, the course will impart the competencies needed to make informed decisions about how to best measure and evaluate the results of interventions to promote decent jobs for women and men, with a particular focus on vulnerable groups as youth, rural populations and informal workers. This year the course is offered in an innovative e-learning format and special attention will be given to the assessment of employment impacts of pandemics like COVID-19.
This course will be of particular interest to: (1) government officials involved in the design and implementation of policies impacting employment, in particular the staff of ministries of labour and employment, economy, planning, education and training; (2) the staff of programme-management teams from private-sector entities, non-governmental organizations and community-based organizations; (3) the operational staff of international organizations, regional development banks and bilateral donor agencies that design or finance programmes impacting employment.
This course is based on methodologies, tools, and approaches developed by the ILO and its partners to forecast jobs creation and evaluate outcomes.
Participants will learn how to assess employment impacts and close evidence gaps.
The course consists of a number of online modules offered through the eCampus online platform to be completed over a period of six weeks from 22 June to 31 July 2020, for an estimated total of 60 learning hours.
