This training develops to a high level the skills required for investigation interviews. Delegates will learn how to conduct interviews by applying the PEACE (planning, preparation, engage and explain, account, closure and evaluation) method.
Delegates will learn how to structure an interview in a more effective way. Delegates consider how to get the interviewees account of events, and then compare that with the facts they already have.
They will practice putting difficult questions and challenges to the interviewee.
They will learn how to use different questioning techniques at different stages of the interview. Many questioning techniques will be dealt with and practiced.
Delegates will consider what, when and why to disclose any other evidence they may have. Delegates will carry out role-plays using tailored case studies typical of the types of interview they conduct.
