The Sustaining Competitive and Responsible Enterprises (SCORE) is a training programme of the International Labour Organization (ILO) targeting SMEs. It aims at improving the productivity and competitiveness of SMEs using management practices that are proven to be effective and in line with ILO values and standards.
In Albania, within the Framework of the Business Partnerships and Solutions for Sustainable Development Goals (BPS4SDGs) Project, funded by the Government of Sweden, the ILO is organizing a SCORE Training of Trainers (ToT) to capacitate national institutions and training service providers to deliver the SCORE training programme to enterprises in the textile and footwear sector.
The ILO is inviting applications from industrial engineers, business consultants, quality, OSH or HR specialists to be trained in SCORE with the goal of becoming ILO certified trainers. Selected candidates will participate in a SCORE ToT for a total duration of 7 days, in June through a combination of class-room (5days) and shop floor training (2 days) with SMEs.
Support the roll out of the SCORE pilot and train SMEs assigned to you in the piloting of SCORE programme in Albania. Daily working fee will be covered by the ILO/BPS4SDGs (estimated time allocation: 9 days to be distributed between July 2022 and November 2022)
