This course provides an executive training on pension policy, equipping participants with the skills to actively participate in national policy processes towards designing
and reforming pension systems. An important feature of the course is to provide a whole systems approach to understanding pension policy, covering design of both contributory and tax-financed (non-contributory) pensions, and exploring how they can best be integrated in to a system that serves all citizens and residents.
The course is designed for executives, managers, planners and other responsible professionals working in the field of pension and social protection policy and administration. The training will include a diverse range of participants from both in government and non-governmental sectors, including employers’ and workers’ organizations and civil society organisations.
The course will employ a combination of group work, lectures, panel discussions and interactive exercises. An eCampus platform will be used to support participants’ preparation before, during and after the course. Technology will be integrated throughout the course to ensure interactivity.
The course will include both plenary sessions (for all participants) and two elective courses that will run in parallel.
