UNICEF Learning Programme

I’ve been back in the office for the last two weeks and they were quite a hectic return to work after my leave. The day I returned in the beginning of June marked the start of the 2009 UNICEF Learning Programme. Over a period of 2 weeks, we welcomed about 80 UNICEF staff members to Maastricht for a face-to-face training on evidence-based policy making. The participants had already worked in a two-month E-Learning phase in which we (re-)introduced basic economic concepts and issues relating to poverty, economic growth and public finance. The face-to-face training in Maastricht built on the basic knowledge and dealt with topics such as poverty, child poverty, social policy and policy evaluation in detail.

This is the third time that MGSoG is running this programme and it still is an exciting task. The UNICEF staff from all over the world bring their own ideas and experiences from the field, making the training very interactive and lively. It’s not just theory that we’re discussing but we also relate to the “real-world” and what the UNICEF staff members have to deal with in the field.

We now have a week “break” and coming Sunday we will welcome a second group of about 100 participants for another two weeks. Another hectic but certainly interesting period.
