Improving the services provided by the Centre for Labour and Social Security Training and Research (ÇASGEM)

Background

The Centre for Labour and Social Security Training and Research (ÇASGEM) designs and conducts an extensive range of training programmes, workshops, and research on subjects relating to the world of work, mainly in the areas of occupational health and safety and of labour and social security. These courses are aimed at both institutions and individuals.

The project’s aims and core activities

The project aims to increase the capacity of ÇASGEM for the design, development, delivery, and evaluation of training and marketing and research in line with EU social policy and employment requirements.

The project’s main components will result in the improvement of the quality of training delivered by ÇASGEM, through the development of new modules and increasing their frequency and attracting more participants. This will require providing additional training to existing instructors to develop their personal and occupational skills. A particular focus will be placed on increasing knowledge and awareness of EU social and employment policies.

As some modules in occupational health and safety for professionals need to be delivered via e-learning methods, the project will provide ÇASGEM with a model for such a platform, which will allow it reach more individual and institutional customers.

ÇASGEM’s profile will also be raised through an extensive marketing and research campaign, which will include improving the agency’s publications and creating a solution-oriented, user-friendly, and accessible website. It is envisaged that these efforts will boost its national and international institutional and individual customers.
