1. Introduction

The International Labour Organization (the ILO) is a U.N. agency committed to bringing together governments, employers and workers of 187 member States, to set labour standards, develop policies and devise programmes promoting decent work for all women and men. Since the early 1950s, the ILO has been providing technical cooperation to countries on all continents and at all stages of economic development. Projects are implemented through close cooperation between recipient countries, donors, and the ILO, which maintains a network of country offices worldwide.


Advancing Decent Work and Inclusive Industrialization in Ethiopia Programme is a comprehensive and coordinated ILO response to a need expressed by the Ethiopian constituents and other key industry stakeholders to advance decent work and inclusive industrialization in key priority sectors identified in the Second Ethiopian Growth and Transformation Plan (GTP II). One of the key components of the Programme is SCORE (Sustainable, Competitive and Responsible Enterprises) intervention. SCORE aims to improve overall enterprise productivity, working conditions and competitiveness of factories in Ethiopia. Its main interventions are the demand driven training and in-factory advisory services.

2. Objective

3. Methodology

The SCORE delivery mechanism is a three-tier process:

· The ILO trains OSH Experts through a Training of Expert Trainer process

· These Experts then train and supervise Trainers
