A course for policy makers, practitioners and trainers
This training programme brings together the accumulated experience, lessons learned and best practices on financial education, drawing on more than 15 years’ experience at the ILO.

During the Post-TOT assignment phase, qualifying participants receive a special edition of individual e-coaching tailored to the needs of ILO financial education trainers. The e-coaching is provided for participants of this certification programme.
The e-coaching follows a unique trainers’ coaching methodology applied within the ILO and ITC ILO Social finance certification programmes. It is provided as a written structured feedback and a thorough evaluation of the work that candidates will have conducted in their countries. Occasionally meetings with senior trainers may be organized.
The purpose of the e-coaching in this programme is to guide qualifying participants towards fulfilling certification requirements by gradual improvement of delivery skills from one session to another, for a total of 3 required sessions.
