Our fast track course in qual­i­ty improve­ment is avail­able in French in addi­tion to Eng­lish. All oth­er cours­es are in Eng­lish only. 

Why take our Courses?

All our cours­es train applic­a­ble skills that allow par­tic­i­pants to build real capac­i­ties in social pro­tec­tion and qual­i­ty improve­ment. By con­duct­ing teach­ing online, we enable par­tic­i­pants to com­plete the cours­es at their own pace while ful­fill­ing their pro­fes­sion­al duties. Par­tic­i­pants receive accred­it­ed cer­tifi­cates upon com­ple­tion of our cours­es, which can be sent direct­ly to employ­ers. We are com­mit­ted towards sup­port­ing capac­i­ty build­ing on an insti­tu­tion­al lev­el. Insti­tu­tions that wish to train mul­ti­ple staff mem­bers can reach out to us to inquire about group rates. To learn more, fol­low this link.

I enjoyed the course and the chal­lenges it posed. It also gave me real insights into how social pro­tec­tion works. In just 8 short months, I learned so much to improve my skill that I can use over a life­time.

The pro­gram has so far allowed me to choose a career to which I pre­vi­ous­ly was quite unsure where it would take me, but which now I am ful­ly ready to pur­sue and to start mak­ing my own way towards pro­duc­ing impact.
Vergil de Claro
‘The pro­gram has giv­en me a thor­ough view of social pro­tec­tion that I pre­vi­ous­ly was not aware of. The multi­na­tion­al par­tic­i­pants are also one of the best part of the pro­gram. By the end of the pro­gram, not only did I gain knowl­edge about it, but I also made a inter­na­tion­al net­work with col­leagues from oth­er social pro­tec­tion insti­tu­tions.’
