Efficient governance can make a lasting difference. No system of social protection can achieve its objectives without good governance – and a pivotal element of good governance is financial governance. Sound financial governance depends on the capacity of persons planning, managing and supervising pension schemes. Responding to this objective, the International Training Centre of the ILO (ITC-ILO) is offering a two-week training course on pension schemes from 6 to 17 April 2020. The International environment at our Centre in Turin, Italy ensures the exchange of experiences between participants from different countries and we are confident that this would be a highly rewarding process.
This course provides advanced knowledge and management tools for the effective supervision and administration of publicly funded or partially funded pension plans. Public and private pension schemes in the region are analysed, with the emphasis on pension reform and good governance. Techniques for financing social security schemes are reviewed, with a view to identifying methods of sustainable financing.
The course is designed for executives, managers, policy-planners, financial officers and other professionals responsible for pension schemes.
The main aim of the course is to enhance the capacity of key actors involved in the pension sector to better advice, design, manage, administer and supervise national pension schemes in a changing global economic and financial context.
The training activity is based on the expertise developed by the Social Security Department and the ITC-ILO. The training programme will focus on the following topics:
An action-oriented, highly participative approach will be used, with particular attention to sharing international experience with a view to adaptation and practical application. Training methods will combine lectures and discussions, case studies, open space discussions and group work.
The programme includes a study tour to French social security institutions based in Lyon in order to provide participants with an opportunity to study applied aspects of social security management.
