The PPO Induction Course is two-week long and is held at Headquarters in New York.

It is strongly recommended that JPOs with UNDP, or its affiliated funds and programmes (UNCDF, UNDOCO and UNV), and as well as UN Women JPOs attend the course within the first 3 to 6 months of their assignment. The course should, however, be attended within the first year only for it to be effective.

The curriculum focuses on strategic, macro-level issues, UN/UNDP policies and development trends, including individual meetings with key counterparts in relevant areas of their work.

The next PPO Workshop will take place in New York from 20 February to 3 March 2017.
