The International Board of Certified Trainers (IBCT) was originally founded in 1988 as a professional society in the United States. Currently it’s a global not-for-profit foundation acting under the European law. IBCT’s mission is to improve the training profession and the public’s perception of it. It has regional headquarters spread over several regions. One of the most important objectives of the board is to strengthen the preparation of training and talent development professionals on a global scale.
Higher Education is at the top of the cascade, growing and shaping the future HR talents. Today’s world is facing considerable challenges – challenges too big to be dealt with by any country or organization acting alone: the economic crisis; unemployment, especially for young people; changing demographics; new technologies and modes of working. These global changes drives us to define the new key competencies for the future together.
