Course Content


The Investigative Interviewing development course is designed for delegates who wish to develop their knowledge, skills and understanding of core investigative interviewing. The course will enable personnel to conduct effective interviews and the focus of the training will be on conversation management where the caution is not given.


The course is designed to reflect recent developments in investigative interviewing theory.  As well as understanding effective conversation management, delegates will learn the relative merits of different types of questions and use the PEACE model in a practical scenario. Delegates will also experience firsthand how fallible the memory can be, and understand how to best structure any interview to ensure that this inherent unreliability can be best overcome.
