Qualities and Strategies of Peacemakers (QSP-online) is a course organised by IofC UK and consists of five short modules, each based on a film about outstanding peacemakers and acts as an introduction to an approach to peacemaking that was developed by Frank Buchman, the founder of what is today known as Initiatives of Change.

Refugees as Re-Builders™
Refugees as Re-Builders™ (RRB) is an ILM Assured capacity-building training programme by IofC UK which provides innovative, meaningful and relevant learning opportunities for settled refugees.
The RRB™ programme covers the skills, knowledge and practice required to initiate dialogue for social cohesion, create sustainable livelihoods for resilience and apply ethical leadership for just governance. The RRB™ course is designed to strengthen the capability and expertise participants already possess as rebuilders, providing them with the resources and practical tools needed to potentially develop and facilitate workshops within their diaspora communities and countries of origin.
Ethical and values-based principles underpin the course, allowing people of different backgrounds to build trust across the divides of ethnicity, class and religion and develop values-based leadership.
