INTERNATIONAL LABOUR OFFICE
The main objectives of the lLO's training programme, which accounts for the largest share of the Organisation's technical co-operation activities, 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 both managerial and vocational training, including new approaches to training and guides for tackling the various problems encountered in the following areas: developing human resources: raising productivity: increasing job satisfaction; and factors affecting the socio-economic environment of the enterprise. They cover all levels of training and all branches of economic activity.
