A full and interactive day dealing with both witness and suspect interviewing, and the role of the interpreter.
Our day is led by police trained advanced interviewers with particular experience of working with interpreters. The day includes inputs on both witness and suspect interviewing and finishes with an interactive practical exercise covering topical issues drawn from live cases.
Achieving Best Evidence 2011 (ABE), the main piece of guidance for police and other investigative agencies involved in witness interviewing, states that interpreters "should have a clear understanding of the objectives of the interview, its structure and the function served by any specific techniques to be used (e.g. those of the cognitive interview)". Our day will cover the setting of interview objectives, interview structure, and the various techniques employed by interviewers.
We also cover relevant legislation and guidance to help ensure any interpreter who experiences our training has the knowledge and confidence to be more effective in their role during police (and other investigative) interviews.
Employing us for the day will show a real commitment to CPD, and will help both upskill and add to the professionalism of any team of interpreters.
Please do get in touch to see how we can help you be much more effective in your role.
