How to Apply



The International Training Centre of the ILO

The International Training Centre of the ILO (ITC-ILO) offers this Master  in Public Procurement Management for Sustainable Development in partnership with the University of Turin.
The International Training Centre of the ILO
The International Training Centre of the International Labour Organization (ITC-ILO) is part of the United Nations specialised agency, created in 1919, which seeks the promotion of social justice and internationally recognized human and labour rights. The ITC-ILO is based in Turin, where each year it hosts thousands of professionals from all over the world, who meet to share their knowledge and experience. The ITC-ILO has extensive expertise in organizing and structuring Master's and other postgraduate programmes, such as its postgraduate course on International Trade Law, its Master's in the Management of Development and its Master's in Cultural Projects for Development.
The Sustainable Development Programme (SDP)

While referring to the broad definition of sustainable development adopted by the United Nations, which postulates the intrinsic relations among economic, social and environmental well-being, SDP takes as a more concrete starting point the Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) in the framework of the 2030 Agenda for Sustainable Development.

Among the 17 SDGs, particular attention is devoted – from an ILO perspective – to goal 8, which aims to “Promote sustained, inclusive and sustainable economic growth, full and productive employment and decent work for all”. SDP is currently offering activities aligned to five areas of
expertise, linked in different ways to the 2030 Agenda for Sustainable Development and its 17 SDGs.

These areas are described in more detail in this brochure:

- Procurement Management,
- Programme and Project Cycle Management,
- Green Jobs,
- Decent Work and Sustainable Development,
- Multinational Enterprises and Global Supply Chains.

SDP designs and delivers courses in partnership with the ILO, UN sister agencies and key international institutions like the World Bank, regional development banks, universities, and inter-governmental organizations. Our training activities are currently delivered in English, French, Russian, Spanish, Portuguese and Arabic. Many of them, particularly the short open courses and the Masters programmes, are delivered in Turin, but tailored activities and capacity-building projects are many times delivered in the respective partner’s country.

We also provide advisory services for public procurement reform at the legal, institutional and managerial levels, as well as assistance in designing, implementing and evaluating development projects and programmes.
