Our facilitated courses provide a solid understanding of violence prevention programming. We aim to foster a common knowledge of essential principles and evidence-based approaches, and these courses help to promote consistency and coherence in violence prevention. They also help you gain insights into the social, cultural, and structural factors contributing to violence. Our expert facilitators host online sessions to review different violence prevention aspects.
By taking any facilitated courses, you will:
- Acquire knowledge on violence against women (VAW) prevention
- Collaborate with other VAW prevention practitioners
- Understand programme contextualisation
In the facilitated courses, you meet regularly through live Zoom sessions with the course facilitators within the course duration. The regular meetings familiarise you with the course content and let you ask questions while the course facilitators foster the discussion, take steps to enhance the learning experience, and give suggestions.
