Training and Capacity Building
IOM delivers bespoke human trafficking and modern slavery awareness-raising sessions and training for frontline professionals working across a variety of organisations who may come into contact with potential victims in the course of their work. The sessions equip participants with an understanding of the issues, the key indicators to be aware of to detect potential cases of trafficking, and ways to take action. These sessions are CPD accredited, with content endorsed by the UK’s Independent Anti-Slavery Commissioner, Kevin Hyland.
Across the UK, we have trained over 2,000 frontline professionals and others, including social workers, healthcare professionals, housing officers, embassy staff and faith-based organisations. Most recently, IOM was commissioned along with Stop the Traffik, to develop a suite of multi-agency awareness-raising materials for local authority, police and NHS staff across London, supported by a train-the-trainer methodology.
