Enhanced Investigative Interview Training


Do you need to conduct an investigative interview?

Investigative interviews are carried out in many different circumstances. Perhaps you work for a local authority and handle investigations as part of your role. You may regularly deal with misconduct allegations or disciplinary inquiries. You could be involved in private investigations relating to insurance or personal injury cases. Whilst there are many situations when you must conduct an investigation, they have one aspect in common. You must interview people to establish the facts. It’s not easy.

You must do a thorough job capable of withstanding rigorous scrutiny. You will potentially be interviewing people who are uncomfortable about providing statements. They may not readily recall the events you need to discuss. Interviewers must make sure they are consistent with everyone and accurately record what they say.

The cost of getting it wrong at an investigative interview can be significant. It can have major repercussions for the investigation outcome. And that can have a big impact on your business or organisation.

This means that Sancus Investigative Interview Training can be a cost effective way to safeguard your people and your organisation.

Waverley Borough Council – November 2015

Interesting and informative course. Kylie used examples and fun exercises, group exercises to lighten a potentially heavy subject and keep our interest – Alison O’Dell

There was a lot of information to take in but it was well explained and the booklet is very helpful. The exercise with probing responses was especially good. There were maybe too many acronyms – Simon Brisk

Trainer explained very well and was very engaging and knowledgeable regarding the subject. It was a lot to take in so I’m glad that the training book is there to assist me in the future. As I am new to my role, the objectives are not all relevant yet but I’m sure will be in the future – Liz Rutledge

Relaxed atmosphere. Engaging. Participation encouraged – Jose Ribeiro

Great opportunity to ask questions. Kylie had great knowledge and enthusiasms to make examples relevant to our roles. Has given me the tools to go back to the team and inspire and improve the way we carry out PACE interviews. Would have liked more opportunity to practice interviews in pairs. So good to have an interesting trainer to make a dull subject interesting. – Victoria Buckroyd
