The Academy on Social Security is the most comprehensive training package delivered by the International Training Centre of the ILO (ITC-ILO) in the field of social protection. Through a diversified and need-driven course curriculum of 20 elective courses and 9 plenary sessions, the Academy addresses a wide range of topics such as the extension of social protection, efficient governance, sustainable financing and reform options with some of the best lecturers on these topics.

Over a two-week period, participants have the opportunity to take advantage of a rich and flexible learning programme, which guarantees a steep learning curve in an international environment of knowledge exchange and provides a unique opportunity for networking with a large pool of social security experts.

With more than five billion people lacking adequate social security, the adoption of a landmark ILO Recommendation concerning national floors of social protection calls for providing people with essential health care and benefits, as well as basic income security constituting national social protection floors. The Academy is designed to enhance the capacity of key actors involved in the social protection sector to build comprehensive and efficient national social protection systems. 

The ITCILO has been playing a key role in the provision of training and capacity building to many stakeholders in the development sector for several decades now. Our direct access to the knowledge bank of the International Labour Organization, United Nations and the opportunity of an international exchange of experiences offered by the ITCILO to our participants here in Italy, sets us a class apart from other conventional training institutions.

After the success of the previous eight editions, which witnessed huge participation of key stakeholders in the social security sector from across the globe, it is our delight to offer the Academy on Social Security from 16-27 September 2019.
