International Criminal Court (ICC)

We came to the Staff College because of their Blue Line platform which offer the learning tools we need to implement our leadership development plan.

Our partnership with UNSSC provides additional benefits. With many of us working virtually, getting staff to commit to online learning is not always easy. For some colleagues, the process is not linear and it’s challenging to stay on track. Fortunately, the UNSSC team is accessible and committed to providing support and guidance. UNSSC staff are approachable. They communicate regularly with students. They run a help desk and modify courses based on our feedback. They offer more than instruction. They have become our trusted training partner.
There is much more to the Staff College than what I initially expected. It has been much more than an educational experience. It has offered our staff phenomenal leadership training, personal growth and professional development experiences as well. I think the entire programme is very well-designed and adds tremendous value to the long-term career aspirations of our staff.
