Our professional development process

Design

Our educational programs are carefully designed to fit the specific professional needs of participants.  We tailor each training to provide a uniquely effective means of improving responsiveness to human trafficking.  Our process of customizing the content of trainings produce performance-based skill development and results that no generic one-size-fits-all training can match.

Deliver

We offer multi-day trainings and short workshops based on the educational objectives determined by each government’s goals and needs.  Depending on the responsibilities and experience of training participants, trainings range from beginning to advanced skillsets and subjects.  Our educational approach emphasizes victim-centered analysis and practices.  Our experts lead our peer-to-peer skill-based inter-active trainings utilizing their experience working on human trafficking cases and deep understanding of best practices in law, policy, and practice.  Graduates of our trainings are equipped with new knowledge, skills, tools, and capacity to improve their performance in combatting human trafficking.

Develop

Professional development to achieve improved performance involves sustained attention to continued growth of professional knowledge and skillsets.  We offer a suite of resources designed to support participants as they apply the newly acquired skills and knowledge in their roles combatting human trafficking after the training.  This includes online on-demand continuing education training sessions, dedicated web resource pages, practice guides, and long-term peer-to-peer consulting and mentoring.
