Description

Description

Efficient governance supported by sound actuarial studies can make a lasting difference in the long-term success or failure of social protection systems. The adequacy and financial sustainability of long-term benefits provided under national public pension schemes have major policy implications. Actuarial studies are empowering policy-makers to better anticipate future deficits and achieve the policy objectives of social protection systems. Through a combination of lectures and applied modelling exercises, this course aims to reinforce the technical skills needed for the long-term actuarial planning of national pension schemes and social protection systems.

Target audience

Target audience

The course is designed for quantitative specialists, such as economists, actuaries, statisticians, mathematicians, computer programmers, accountants and financial managers, involved in the financial planning of public pension schemes and other social protection programmes.

Objectives

The workshop provides advanced knowledge and modeling tools needed for the effective design, management and monitoring of pension schemes. The main aim of the workshop is to enhance the capacity of participants to use projection methods, develop actuarial models and build their own country-specific model based on the generic model of the ILO. At the end of the workshop, participants will be better equipped to understand and participate in the financial planning of their institutions through actuarial projections.

International Certification for Social Protection Analysts

International Certification for Social Protection Analysts

Background and Objective

The International Certification for Social Protection Analysts is a new initiative of the International Training Centre of the ILO (ITCILO). Its central objective is to reinforce the capacity of Social Protection Analysts through critical professional training in the planning, design, governance and management of national social protection systems ILO member states.

The central objectives of the International Certification are to:

  • Increase the competences of Social Protection Analysts
  • Ensure – through a rigorous certification process - that these Social Protection Analysts have sound and up-to-date skills and the capacity to improve the policies and management of national social protection systems and to provide policy advice and the quantitative evidence base for policy decision making through financial, economic and fiscal and social impact analyses of social protection policies,
  • Build a marinating network of Social Protection Analysts which serve as a permanent challenge for the exchange of national and personal experience and thus create a powerful conduit for life-long learning from real world experience.

Certification Process

International Certification


The International Certification is composed of four social protection courses. Participants need to complete three courses out of the four qualified courses within a 5-year period in order to earn the “Social Protection Analysts” recognition. The International Certification represents 450 learning hours. 

During each of the three courses, 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. It also provides a unique opportunity for networking with a large pool of social security experts.
