Welcome to the website of the Staff Development and Learning Section (SDLS) at the United Nations Office at Geneva (UNOG).
The Staff Development and Learning Section is committed to providing to our diverse clients high quality, state of the art, innovative and effective learning opportunities and organizational support.
In line with UN values and competencies, SDLS support individual and institutional growth and performance to meet organizational needs particularly in the context of ongoing change.
SDLS is charged with implementing the Organization’s training and learning policy which is based on the principle that staff development is an ongoing process and priority and a critical investment for the future, for which the Organization, its managers and staff all share responsibility.
Staff members must play their part to develop and maintain their skills and competencies. Whatever their grade level or breadth of experience and whether a senior manager with years of service, or a recent recruit, all staff will find programmes appropriate to their needs.
SDLS runs more than 500 courses for more than 7000 participants each year in the main areas of language training, management and communication, information technology as well as conducting testing and examination for recruitment.
We are pleased to provide you through this website with a full and real-time overview of our numerous offerings.
