Training of Trainers on SCORE Module 1

Under the SCORE programme, ILO will build the capacity of intermediary institutions that provide services to local enterprises. In this context, ILO is organizing the 1st Training of Trainers (ToT) workshop on SCORE Module 1: ‘Workplace Cooperation’.

ILO had adopted the ‘Conclusions concerning the Promotion of Sustainable Enterprises' at the International Labour Conference in 2007. A number of initiatives were taken as a response to the conclusion. One of the initiatives, under the ambit of ILO’s strategic framework on Development of Sustainable Enterprises, was the designing of a new global programme 'Sustaining Competitive and Responsible Enterprises' (SCoRE) with the objective to increase the productivity of small and medium enterprises (SMEs) through adoption of clean and quality production techniques along with workplace improvements).

The programme is currently operational in seven countries including India (the other countries are Ghana, Colombia, South Africa, Indonesia, Vietnam and China) and employs the strategy of demonstration and replication to achieve the objective of SME competitiveness. SCoRE adopts a modular approach combining class-room training and implementation assistance at the shop floor. The targeted end-users of SCoRE are workers and managers in small and medium-sized enterprises participating in this programme. With the aim of replicating the programme methodology in a sustainable manner, the programme builds the capacity of intermediary institutions that provide services to local enterprises as well as policy/programme level organizations.

The India component of the SCoRE Programme is now operational. One of the activities under the SCORE programme in India is to build the capacities of intermediary institutions that provide services to local enterprises. In this context, ILO will be organizing the 1st Training of Trainers (ToT) workshop on SCORE Module 1: ‘Workplace Cooperation’ in ILO New Delhi office on 22-24 March 2011
