This course looks at the relevant law, evidence and procedures that are essential for an investigator to carry out an effective and compliant investigation.
This intensive and practical one day training course is designed to provide delegates with a clear insight into the legal framework in which they work. Those attending will examine their governing legislation, practice, procedures and rules of evidence that impact on their work.
They will learn from qualified lawyers how to apply best practice in their procedures to ensure consistent standards are applied across the board, at all stages of their investigation. Delegates will learn how to investigate, collect and record evidence properly so that they can stand over their investigation when challenged in court.
Many professionals, as part of their every day role, gather evidence. This includes those with a regulatory, investigative, complaints handling, inspection, enforcement or prosecution role.
Those who collect evidence often fail to realise the way in which this evidence will be scrutinised and criticised in the litigation process. The training will instil in them best practice procedures and processes, with an understanding of why they are important.
Learn how to gather evidence in accordance with best practice standards so that it is admissible, relevant and credible.
Review the process of collecting, recording, assessing and evaluating evidence in a way that will highlight the pitfalls and shortcomings in gathering evidence.
Delegates will consider how to carry out their work to best practice standards. The training looks at the different types and sources of evidence and how this evidence will be collected and recorded so that it is admissible and reliable in any subsequent legal proceedings.
Delegates conducting investigations will learn how to conduct an investigation that is compliant with the human rights principles.
Delegates will analyse a case to determine what has to be proved and how to prove it using the best available evidence.
They will consider case studies tailored to their specific areas of work. This training will assist those who investigate or carry out either criminal, civil or employment investigations.
