Fantastic to see our Crime Scene to Courtroom workshop going down so well before lockdown
We received some really nice, unprompted feedback from a school in Stockport who treated the students to our Crime Scene to Courtroom Criminology workshop - this was our very last delivery before schools were forced to close due to the pandemic.
"Many thanks to you at Zakon Training for providing our Year 10s with an enjoyable, interesting and challenging Criminology Workshop.
The delivery by Graham was spot on for our pupils. He had a wealth of insight and hands on anecdotes from his time as a serving police officer. He really made the crime 'come to life' with great resources, powerpoint tasks and interactive activities. Studying the crime scene and the clues and forensics involved was probably the highlight of the day!
Importantly for the pupils, they not only learnt a great deal of inside information into the subject of criminology, but Graham also opened up their eyes to the plethora of careers and support services required when looking at combating crime and working in the criminal justice system.
Our pupils were engaged throughout and enjoyed setting up the courtroom in the afternoon and playing the part of defendant, lawyers, judge and jury.
A great day .......and a memorable and different type of day from the pupils' usual routine.
We would love you to keep in touch and look forward to welcoming you back to Hulme Hall again."
We are used to get such glowing feedback, but this was all the more special with it being our last delivery before lockdown and we have really missed seeing the impact that we have on young peoples lives every day.
Our Crime Scene to Courtroom workshop see students investigate a murder based on a real life case that we'd investigated, they then up presenting their investigation in a mock courtroom battle where the jury of students decide on a verdict! The day is perfect for students studying social sciences, criminology and the law, but as the feedback explains our inspiring team open up the students to a whole plethora of careers within science, law and investigation and utilise their own experience of working within law to capture the students imagination.
Details of the workshop can be found here Crime Scene to Courtroom: Criminology Workshop Schools are already thinking about next year and we are forward planning to ensure that we can accommodate all schools that would like us so please do get in touch at firstname.lastname@example.org
In the meantime, stay safe and fingers crossed for a safe return to school for students and staff.
