The International Training Centre, established in 1964 in Turin, Italy, is the training arm of the International Labour Organization (ILO), a United Nations agency entrusted with promoting social justice, including internationally recognized human rights and labour standards.

The Centre is committed to assisting countries in their social and economic development through learning and training. In this respect, it provides training and related services in support of ILO's pursuit of Decent Work for all including actions for development of human resources and institutional capabilities.

ITCILO demand-driven training portfolio consists of courses in key work-related areas. In addition to standard courses with long track record of successful delivery and which are constantly updated to suit evolving circumstances and requirements, the Centre periodically introduces new courses and other learning events which are designed to meet specific clients' needs and requests. More than 450 programmes and projects are carried out for a total of around 11,000 people from over 180 countries each year.

However, the Centre is more than a training institute. The campus in Turin, Italy, is a meeting place where professionals from all over the world share experience in a model environment of cultural diversity. This is also true of the distance learning virtual campus networks which are increasingly playing a prominent role in the work of ITCILO.
