How will you learn with the ITC-ILO?
What you really need to know about the Turing Learning Approach
Drawing on over four decades’ experience, the Centre has developed a learning strategy branded as the Turin Learning Approach. It has three main pillars: relevance, quality and impact.
Relevance to the Centre means ensuring that its activities are customer-oriented: they respond to the need of individuals and help meet organizational development agendas. The more training and learning activities are embedded in wider national policies, the more likely it is that learning will boost organizational performance.
Quality services ensure that the Centre’s value-based learning opportunities enhance the professional level of participants. Innovative and unconventional methods involve participants in a participatory approach with practical application, through which they acquire the knowledge, skills and attitudes they need to improve their individual and organizational performance.
Impact is about making a difference. Our training activities are instrumental to the application of newly acquired competencies in participants’ organizations. In recent years, the Centre has significantly stepped up its efforts to evaluate its programmes. Individual training activities are systematically evaluated by participants, and their feedback is ploughed back into the design of future activities.
New technology is an integral part of the Turin Learning Approach.
The Centre provides a level playing field on which institutions from the most diverse countries and societies come to understand how labour, social and development issues have been dealt with, to share good practice and to learn from one another’s experience. It offers a platform for the promotion and dissemination of ILO values, policies and tools embodied in the Decent Work Agenda and in the Declaration on Social Justice for a Fair Globalization adopted by the 2008 International Labour Conference, but also for validation and feedback on the broadest range of national experience and practice.
