The main objectives of the ILO's training programme are:

(a) to increase the effectiveness of training systems, schemes and institutions and to establish comprehensive national training policies and programmes;

(b) to improve the opportunities available for the acquisition of occupational knowledge, skills and competence by workers in various sectors of economic activity, including the rural sector, and for various segments of the population, including women, young people and the disabled;

(c) to make the management of enterprises in different sectors more efficient, through training managers in modern management sciences in order to increase both productivity and management's awareness of its social responsibilities.

The aim of ILO publications on training is to spread knowledge about training systems and policies and about managerial and vocational training, including new approaches to various problems encountered in the following areas: improving the cost-effectiveness of training; raising the productivity of enterprises; the development of small enterprises; practical and tested approaches and guide-lines for training various target groups at all levels and in all branches of economic activity.
