Format and Methodology

The ITCILO promotes a blended approach in its learning activities:

  • Phase I: Pre-course information on the Internet-based learning platform (Two weeks before the course)
  • Phase II: Face-to-face workshops (One week course in Turin)
  • Phase III: Follow-up on the Internet-based learning platform  (Following the face-to-face course)


During the course:

  • An action-oriented, highly participative approach will be used, with particular attention to sharing international experiences with a view to their adaptation and practical application
  • Training methods will combine lectures and discussions, case studies, open space debate, role play exercises and group work
  • Participants will be requested to bring to the meeting information on the most recent trends and statistics, and copies of important legislation and policy documents relating to domestic work in their countries
  • Particular attention will be paid to the presentation of “best practices” through case studies reflecting experiences already gained locally and internationally


 The gender dimension will be a cross-cutting theme throughout the training programme.
