ITU is bringing together partners from government, industry, financial institutions and other stakeholders as part of a shared effort to Connect the World. The objective of Connect the World is to mobilize the human, financial and technical resources required to bridge the major gaps in access to telecommunications/ICTs which are seen as catalysts for broader economic growth, employment and development in all regions.
As a flagship initiative of ITU’s Connect the World initiative, the ITU Academy Partnership offers you a unique opportunity to demonstrate your commitment to supporting education and training, in several ways:
1. Co-sponsor ITU Academy Curriculum
Co‑sponsor the development of ITU Academy training and educational resources in any of our official working languages (Arabic, Chinese, English, French, Russian, and Spanish). These materials can be prepared for delivery in either face-to-face settings, through e-learning, or a combination of both. Your sponsorship will help ITU collaborate with the best subject matter experts and instructional design specialists to prepare world-class training/educational materials.
Subject to agreement, training materials can be made widely and freely available on the ITU Academy portal as an open education resource, delivered through our partner training/education institutions, such as our Centres of Excellence and/or Internet Training Centres, and/or through ITU Academy Sponsored Training Workshops programme.
2. Sponsor ITU Academy Training Workshops
Sponsor one or more of a series of ITU Academy training workshops on chosen topics, including emerging wireless technologies and applications, emergency communications and disaster relief, rural access policy, and regulatory best practices among others. Sponsorship costs are used to cover expenses for subject matter expert trainers, the provision of fellowships for developing country participants, venue support, and/or training materials.
3. Become an ITU Academy Partner Institution
Join a growing network of partners who are sharing expertise, resources and capacity-building know-how in telecommunications and ICTs training/education. As an ITU Academy Partner Institution you can help shape the direction of activities of ITU Academy and contribute directly to our training/education efforts.
