    Background information

    The United Nations System Staff College (UNSSC) is the UN’s system-wide knowledge management and learning institution created in 2002 by the General Assembly as a direct response to long-standing perceptions on the need to strengthen the effectiveness of the international civil service and to foster a cohesive organizational culture across the UN system.

    Headquartered in Turin (Italy), UNSSC’s mission is to contribute to a more effective, results-oriented and agile UN through learning, training and knowledge dissemination. Since 2015, all of the Staff College’s learning and training activities are geared towards enabling the UN system and its partners to address the challenges posed by the adoption of Agenda 2030 for Sustainable Development.

    UNSSC’s programmes range from leadership and management development, to the development of those sectoral and functional competences that are needed to effectively serve as an international civil servant. UNSSC also provides learning interventions to increase technical and substantive knowledge spanning the three pillars of the UN’s work: peace and security, human rights and development.

    In recognition of the fact that road crashes are a leading cause of death and serious injury to United Nations (UN) personnel and other road users, the UN committed to curb road crashes among its staff through a single, mutually supporting approach. The UN Road Safety Strategy is designed to prevent serious and fatal crashes through a combination of safer vehicles and drivers, effective governance, better survivability and safer infrastructure. Together these pillars form a ‘safe system’ designed with the assumption in mind that mistakes will happen. Each pillar is designed to compensate for the others should one or more fail.

    In recognition that high quality, sustainable and cost-effective driver training options are not readily available globally, the UNSSC aims to create sustainable capacity within UN and partner organizations to plan and deliver standardized, high-quality training and posttraining evaluation.

    In 2018, the UNSSC established a Road Safety Programme to support activities under the Strategy’s Safer Road Users Pillar, with a specific focus on building capacity within UN organizations to deliver standardized, sustainable and cost-effective driver training. UNSSC also chairs the UN Safer Road Users Working Group and is recognized by the Royal Society for the Prevention of Accidents (RoSPA) as an International Training Centre.

    As part of its portfolio, the Staff College offers a series of capacity building training courses related to road safety. These include a 3-day Defensive Driver Training (DDT), a 5-day Advanced Safe Driver Training (ASDT), and a 12-day Driver Training of Trainers (ToT) course that enables successful participants to deliver the DDT and ASDT based on their organization’s specific needs. Both the DDT and ASDT courses have been independently assessed and approved by RoSPA.

    • Defensive Driver Training (as a lead or co-trainer);
