This course is one of five eligible courses for the Diploma on project management
for sustainable development.
To achieve the Diploma, successful candidates must complete three out of five courses within a five-year period and undertake a capstone assessment.
The project design certification programme helps to strengthen participants' knowledge and skills in designing and writing project proposals, including the oversight of such processes. It also aims to enhance participants' ability to identify and leverage opportunities for mobilizing financial resources for projects. By professionalizing and certifying their staff, organizations sponsoring participants in this certification programme will strengthen their own institutional capacity for designing successful projects and raising funding for them.
Technical specialists; national project coordinators; project managers and assistants; staff of international organizations; national development planning officials; non-governmental organization officials involved in the development of project proposals and in resource mobilization activities.
Organizations require their staff to develop and implement projects in their respective areas of specialization. These professionals are often highly specialized in their technical area, but lack the competencies needed to design well-structured and complete projects.
This certification programme contributes to closing this skills gap and enhancing the candidates’ personal skills and this way strengthening their capacity to design successful projects and to mobilize resources.
After all, a well-written project documentis the first step in ensuring project success, and
is the best entry point for fundraising and partnership building.
This course is delivered through distance learning and deployed on the ITCILO e-campus. It frees you from the classroom and gives you the flexibility to complete the learning modules at your own pace and to fit the weekly assignments and the project within your own schedule.
