Returning to campus! After three years of e-learning during the COVID-19 pandemic, the ITC-ILO invites ISSA members back to on-campus Diploma training courses.

Extending coverage of social protection is one of the greatest challenges facing social security institutions across the globe. Participants of this course will draw on international best-practice guidelines to identify administrative solutions to improve access to contributory social security programmes for populations that are difficult to cover.

This is one of seven ISSA Diploma training courses run in partnership with the ITC-ILO, offered in an innovative face-to-face and interactive format.
