ITP studies

Why ITP?
Taking part in an international training programme (ITP) gives the participants the chance to study Swedish experiences, models and cutting edge skills. It also, thanks to the other delegates and the structure of the programmes, gives them the opportunity to share and learn from the experiences of other developing countries.
This approach requires active involvement by all participants. It is the collective input of the participants, the programme management team, and the other contributors that creates the international training programmes, and this is why it is so important that everyone actively shares their expertise and experiences.

Who is ITP for?
The international training programmes are designed for decision-makers and administrative officials in developing countries who work in the public sector, but people from relevant trade and industry sectors or voluntary organisations are also welcome to participate in ICLD’s training programmes in cases where it is felt they can assist in the promotion of democracy-related work at a local level in the country in question.
There is often considerable diversity amongst the 25 or so participants accepted for each programme, and they may work at completely different levels in the public sector. The one thing they all have in common, however, is that they are key individuals within their respective organisations. 
The goal of the acceptance process is to establish a balance between, on the one hand, ensuring a dynamic mix of participants and, on the other hand, recognising the advantages that may accrue from several of the participants coming from the same organisation.
