The Official Account of #UNITAR #Peacekeeping #Training Programme (PTP) Enhancing #Capacity. Building #Peace.
Introduction
The United Nations Institute for Training and Research (UNITAR) was established in 1965 as an autonomous body within the United Nations with the purpose of enhancing the effectiveness of the Organization through appropriate training and research.

Peacekeeping Training Programme
As one of the four thematic programmes under the United Nations Institute for Training and Research’s (UNITAR) Peace, Security, and Diplomacy Unit, the Peacekeeping Training Programme (PTP) contributes to the effectiveness of peace operations, by improving the preparedness of civilian, military and police personnel interested in deployment to field missions.

Topics for UNITAR PTP courses are decided based on trends and issues related to relevant UN resolutions and current world events. UNITAR PTP identifies the needs of beneficiaries in order to develop topics that are diverse, dynamic and have a real impact on the efforts of worldwide peace operations.

UNITAR PTP is supported by an Advisory Board, comprised of six esteemed individuals with highly pertinent professional experiences. UNITAR PTP draws on their vast experience and knowledge in order to ensure that the programme remains on the cutting edge of training for peace operations.

Training Methodology
UNITAR PTP adopts an approach to training that highlights experiential and collaborative learning. This approach focuses on the learning needs, interests and styles of participants to ensure the relevance and retention of content and puts particular emphasis on the active participation of learners through practice-oriented learning environments.

UNITAR PTP’s approach allows participants to share knowledge and experiences and contribute dynamically to the learning process. Through this process, participants not only acquire information but also contribute to the construction of knowledge in a way that is meaningful and directly applicable to the reality of peace operations. Instructors guide participants through this process, delivering and conveying information, clarifying doubts and supporting participants through different activities.

UNITAR PTP’s approach to training puts particular emphasis on monitoring and evaluation. This process continuously develops course structure and activities to better suit participants’ areas of interest. This also allows for a review process that systematically improves course design and implementation for future versions of the course.

Target audience
Courses address a broad audience of civilians, such as students, researchers, academics and individuals from governmental and non-governmental organizations, as well as national and regional military and police personnel of every rank and function.

Participants are not expected to have prior experience in or knowledge of the field. However, for advanced courses, a general understanding of the structure, components and functioning of a peace operation is highly advisable.
