Training

Skills development plays a major role in employment, both in terms of quantity and quality. With the growing pace of technological change, the need for specialized technical skills has become ever more pressing. The skills required to be employed in modern leather and leather products manufacturing are changing, as well as the institutional structure around them. In the past, employability was correlated with improvements in basic education levels. In the emerging competitive setting, there is a greater emphasis on specialized high-level training.

 UNIDO has demonstrated its commitment to professional training. The majority of its  technical assistance projects include study tours, fellowships and group training activities. Moreover, the majority of UNIDO’s interventions in the leather sector involve establishing, upgrading or assisting institutions and trade associations that provide professional education and/or training.

 Employment generation is an important aspect of any industrialization agenda. Both developed and developing countries are calling for policies that promote skills development.

 Innovation, fostered in part by a highly trained and skilled work force, is fundamental to sustained economic growth. Documents and papers related to training and learning prepared by UNIDO are available in this section.

UNIDO on-line learning How to deal with hydrogen sulphide gas

Confronted with increasing legal and social pressures, no tanner can afford the luxury of not being familiar with the main issues and principles of occupational, safety and health protection pertaining to tannery operations.

Hydrogen sulphide gas present in tanneries and effluent treatment plants has proven fatal to workers exposed to it many times.

See also Safety Video - How to deal with hydrogen sulhide gas

It is therefore necessary that the owners and managers of tanneries and effluent treatment plants are fully aware of the dangers posed by this poisonous gas and take all preventive and precautionary measures to protect the workforce from exposure to this gas. In the event of accidental exposure of a worker, they should know how to deal with the situation.

The lessons that follow are to help tanners, tannery managers and operators to acquaint themselves with the basic principles How to deal with hydrogen sulphide gas.

The on-line course developed by UNIDO including test provides an opportunity for the proper training within tanneries related to danger associated with hydrogen sulphide gas. After finishing the test with minimum score 80%, participants will receive the certificate and will be able to download it.

The objective of the study e-Learning in the leather based industries is to analyze the the use of modern (non-traditional, beyond the textbook and classroom based) training methods and related tools. Special attention is paid to the new UNIDO effort in building a library of electronic training materials for the leather, footwear and other leather products industries. As the first attempt the footwear pattern engineering training kit transferred into e-Learning tools are presented in order to demonstrate capabilities and the potential of this technology. Paper presented during the 18th UNIDO Leather Panel in Shanghai/China September/2012

The objective of the study is to analyze the actual, fairly contradiction situation caused by economic changes in the past 3-5 decades, to review the most pressing problems – especially from developing countries point of view (where the bulk of leather processing and leather products manufacturing takes place presently) and to recommend principles and directions for [internationally] coordinated development in this field. Paper prepared and presented by Mr. F. Schmel during the 17th UNIDO Leather Panel Meeting in Addis Ababa/Ethiopia (January 2010)
