Yet, global estimates show that only a fraction of the population has adequate social protection coverage. Countries around the world are engaged in debate how to expand their social protection systems to all and ensure they can adapt to major global transformations, such as ageing populations and changes in the world of work. The training activities of the Centre strengthen the capacity of ILO constituents and other stakeholders working on social protection to gain core knowledge and practical skills in policy formulation, social security administration and quantitative analysis of social protection systems.

Flagship training initiatives


The Academy on Social Security is both a training course and a key moment in the social protection calendar for practitioners and experts to exchange the latest thinking on policy development. 



Each year we run a series of courses on the key components of effective social security administration, using as a framework the guidelines developed by the International Social Security Association.


The Diploma for Social Protection Analysts is a new accreditation for a recognised set of quantitative skills in the areas of impact assessment, public finance and actuarial modelling.
