Capacity building training with the labour inspection on child labour

On November 25 – 27, a three-day capacity-building training was organized, in which 20 regional labour inspections from Gorno-Badakhshan Autonomous Region, Sughd region and several republican- subordinated regions of Tajikistan took part.

During the three-day trainings exercise, the participants have covered a broad spectrum of issues related to the worst forms of child labour, the work of child labour inspections, interviewing children and determining a child’s age. A special focus was on the efforts aimed at prevention of hazardous child labour and addressing the cases involving physical or psychological harm done by child labour.
The training has been organized as part of the action programme “Labour inspection and child labour – strengthening the roles and means of action of labour inspectors to fight child labour.” It has been implementing with the ILO’s International Programme on the Elimination of Child Labour (ILO–IPEC) by the State Service for Supervision in the Sphere of Labour, Employment and Social Security of Population (Labour inspection). The action programme envisages that by the end of 2015, all 60 labour inspectors in Tajikistan will receive such trainings and will increase their capacity to identify and effectively deal with child labour issues.
