Description

Description

The ILO has developed and tested various tools for promoting occupational safety and health (OSH) in the workplace. Participatory Action-Oriented Training (PAOT) is a training methodology specifically designed to improve working conditions and productivity in Small and Micro Enterprises (SMEs) and the informal economy in developing countries. To promote sustainable delivery mechanisms for improving OSH in SMEs, this course, which includes both a distance-learning and a residential phase, aims to instruct trainers from developing countries in the delivery of OSH courses based on the PAOT programmes, and at the same time offer them an online knowledge platform and a virtual professional community for networking purposes.

Format and Methodology

Format and Methodology

This training of trainers course will be divided into two phases: a distance-learning phase based on an online virtual platform (from 1 August to 1 November 2019) and a residential short course in Turin, Italy (4 - 8 November 2019).  

The distance-learning phase will use an Internet-based learning platform that will be activated eleven weeks before the course (1 August 2019). During this phase, participants should follow a 60-hour self-administered course on the platform and perform a test at the end of the distance learning phase. The platform will also present a documentation centre that will contain useful information for the participants on the topics of the course. This distance-learning phase is a preparatory phase to ensure that all participants have a common level of knowledge of the subject that allows them a greater benefit of the face-to-face phase of the course. During the residential phase, a highly participatory and action-oriented approach will be used during the course, giving much emphasis on the exchange of experiences in looking for innovative and practical solutions to problems and challenges.

The methodology will be centred on the participants and the learning process, with the support of facilitators. The training methodology will use active methods for learning, making use of the knowledge and the experience of participants, promoting a permanent communication among participants, through group work, and discussions, that will facilitate their own total integration and participation in the course activities.

A permanent monitoring of the learning process will be conducted throughout the training by the course coordinator. At the end of the course, an individual end-of-course evaluation questionnaire will be used to know the level of knowledge acquisition and to allow participants to express their view about the training. Participants will also be presented with pertinent documentation as a follow-up to the presentations in order to expand the knowledge about the topics.

Participants who successfully complete the programme will be awarded with a diploma of achievement authorizing them to deliver training courses on PAOT programmes.
