Imkaan has delivered training and peer-education learning, workshops and seminars to voluntary and statutory sector professionals for more than 13 years. In the last year, we have delivered training to more than 300 delegates across the UK.
Imkaan’s training programme is uniquely informed by grassroots responses to gender-based violence within a BME context. Each course is designed to cover key areas including impact, promising practice in relation to disclosure, risk assessment and support planning, current and changing law and practice.

Imkaan has been recognised as a centre to deliver National Open College Network (NOCN) qualifications since 2009. Our accredited programmes offer a unique teaching experience which provides interactive learning with our tutors as well as nationally recognised qualifications gained towards individual professional development.
Imkaan is also accredited by the Law Society to provide a Continued Professional Development programme for lawyers and legal practitioners. This programme is specifically aimed at providing legal advocates with an opportunity to increase knowledge about violence against women and girls in relation to family, criminal, civil and human rights law.
Who is our training for?
Our training is beneficial to all statutory bodies including the police, local authorities, social services, health and wellbeing services and education institutions as well as violence against women and girls sector staff and other voluntary sector organisations who are seeking to improve awareness on violence against women and girls within a BME context.
Where does our training take place?
Imkaan delivers training at our in-house training centre based in London. We also deliver training and workshops in a variety of settings at a local, national and international level.
What do participants say about our training?
Really impressed, very relevant to my role and really got me thinking about the kind of service we offer BME women and how we risk assess, particularly in cases of ‘honour-based’ violence – have taken a lot of ideas back with me to use and share.
I have learnt an enormous amount about ‘hidden’ risks that need to be explored and probed. Will take this back to my project and review our risk assessment and safety planning.
More confident in my own views on ‘honour-based’ violence and forced marriage.
The occasionally blurred distinctions between ‘arranged’ and ‘forced’ marriage are clear now, from a professional perspective, in that it has been stated that any suggestion of guilt, shame, pressure or emotional blackmail constitutes ‘forced marriage’.
