Our Learning Programmes Are UN-specific
Relevant to your daily work
Closer than you think
Directly at your desk
Tailor-made for your Organization
We are part of the UN family, so we know what it means to work in the United Nations – be it in the field or at headquarters, in middle-income countries, in programmes or in operations, in entry-level or in management positions. Our programmes are tailored to the distinctive reality of the UN system and of specific UN organizations.
Our learning experiences bring together UN staff from across the system in a truly inter-agency spirit. Participants learn from each other, exchange views on common issues, and build networks to continue learning beyond the classroom. We believe that only by ‘learning as one’ can UN staff ‘deliver as one.’
