ISSA Guidelines, knowledge sharing and innovation
Each year we run a series of courses on the key components of effective social security administrationin collaboration with the International Social Security Association (ISSA). The ISSA Guidelines provide a framework for the courses and a solid ground to develop staff competencies on international professional standards in social security administration.
See below for the specific details of the courses that will run in 2019.
The ISSA Academy diploma programme is designed for managers, administrators, experts and staff working in ISSA member institutions who have a professional interest in one or more of the specific sets of Guidelines and who would like to develop their knowledge and competencies.
Each training course involve up to 25 participants from ISSA member institutions.
Each training course aims to provide participants with an overall understanding of the core areas and international professional standards of one set of ISSA Guidelines and to enable the application of these standards by ISSA member organizations.
Each training course is focused on one set of ISSA Guidelines. It is structured in three phases, to total around 50 hours of course work.
A certificate is awarded to the individual participant based on their participation in the pre- and the on-site training as well as satisfactory completion of the post-training assignment.
Through its pivotal role in social security management, strong partnerships with other social security institution and comprehensive technical cooperation projects around the world, the ISSA and the ITCILO draw on a worldwide network of social security experts from its own staff, social security institutions, recognized universities and research institutes and senior consultants.
Each training course on a set of ISSA Guidelines costs 2215 EUR (1600 EUR for tuition + 615 EUR for subsistence), excluding international air travel and airport transfers. This is payable in advance by the participant’s sponsoring organization.
This covers: tuition fees; the use of training facilities and support services; training materials and books; accommodation and full board at the Centre’s campus; emergency medical care and insurance.
