Overview of the courses program

This post­grad­u­ate pro­gramme offers both online and face-to-face short cours­es which aim to expand in-depth knowl­edge on var­i­ous aspects of social pro­tec­tion schemes as well as impart the tech­ni­cal back­ground and prac­ti­cal skillsets need­ed to sup­port the build­ing or expan­sion of social pro­tec­tion schemes and the poli­cies which sup­port them. Par­tic­i­pants of the pro­gramme will sub­se­quent­ly be capa­ble of mak­ing sig­nif­i­cant con­tri­bu­tions to the  elab­o­ra­tion and imple­men­ta­tion of reforms nec­es­sary for achiev­ing and main­tain­ing viable, sus­tain­able and effi­cient social pro­tec­tion sys­tems which effec­tive­ly and equi­tably  meet cur­rent and future socio-eco­nom­ic and gen­der-spe­cif­ic chal­lenges.

Dis­ci­pli­nary and inter­dis­ci­pli­nary pro­file (out­comes) of the Short Cours­es pro­gram:

The objec­tives of the short course pro­gramme take a three-tiered approach, look­ing at prob­lems and solu­tions on the indi­vid­ual lev­el, the insti­tu­tion­al-lev­el and the mul­ti — insti­tu­tion­al lev­el (sys­tems-lev­el). 

The pro­gram has the fol­low­ing spe­cif­ic objec­tives:

  • Pro­mo­tion of indi­vid­ual and pro­fes­sion­al com­pe­ten­cies, includ­ing research skills in social pro­tec­tion
  • Devel­op­ment of prac­ti­cal prob­lem-solv­ing skills in the area of social pro­tec­tion
  • Devel­op­ment of trans-dis­ci­pli­nary dia­logue com­pe­tence and net­work­ing among pro­gram alum­ni and with spe­cial­ized nation­al and inter­na­tion­al insti­tu­tions
  • Pro­mo­tion of stu­dent lead­er­ship and inno­va­tion com­pe­ten­cies with­in their own insti­tu­tions and social pro­tec­tion sys­tems.

With the accomplishment of the courses, the participants will be able to:

  • Demon­strate didac­tic knowl­edge and tech­ni­cal skills in man­ag­ing essen­tial social pro­tec­tion instru­ments
  • Man­age com­plex busi­ness process­es con­cern­ing social pro­tec­tion pro­grammes
  • Exam­ine the risks faced by indi­vid­u­als and com­mu­ni­ties and poten­tial sys­tem respons­es
  • Iden­ti­fy com­mon strengths and chal­lenges to social pro­tec­tion pro­grammes and their imple­men­ta­tion
  • Assess poten­tial gaps between exist­ing sup­ply and emerg­ing demand for social pro­tec­tion
  • Rec­om­mend new social pro­tec­tion inter­ven­tions and fore­cast their poten­tial impacts
  • Pro­pose mul­ti-tiered solu­tions for improv­ing the social pro­tec­tion sys­tem land­scape
  • Eval­u­ate the impacts of social pro­tec­tion sys­tems on broad­er pol­i­cy objec­tives and draw rec­om­men­da­tions for dif­fer­ent stake­hold­ers.
