The Centre’s Workers’ Activities Programme responds to the training needs of workers’ organizations around the world and strengthens their capacities for effective representation of the interests of working people by holding advanced courses, developing training materials, running capacity-building projects and providing advisory services
In 2016, special attention will be given to international labour standards, trade union strategies in multinational companies and global supply chains and the transition from informal to formal economy. The courses are for participants aged under 45, with equal opportunities for women and men. Training courses under the Workers’ Activities Programme are by invitation. Additional candidates paying an appropriate fee may be accepted subject to the approval of the Secretary of the Workers’ Group of the ILO Governing Body.
