Professional Award in Workplace Investigation and Interviewing
Managers and supervisory staff are increasingly being called upon to conduct malpractice investigations within the workplace. The purpose of the investigation may be to establish that a crime has been committed, prior to calling the police, or it may be in support of potential litigation and/or internal disciplinary procedures.
This programme will provide the basic skills necessary to undertake fair, legally compliant and effective internal investigations. The programme is highly interactive with many practical elements.
