Delegates will learn by focusing in an experiential way on the practical aspects of an investigatory or disciplinary process. The investigations training will cover areas such as fact finding, note-taking, interviewing, weighing up the evidence and report writing so as to comply with the employees right to "natural and constitutional" justice at all times.

This is done through practical exercises & role-plays on specific case studies with feedback from the trainer who is a qualified lawyer practicing in the employment field.
