iPROCEEDS-2: ToT on Training Skills when delivering cybercrime and electronic evidence courses

Istanbul, Türkiye , 

On 15 – 17 June 2022, the iPROCEEDS-2 project delivered to Turkish magistrates the Training of Trainers (ToT) on Training Skills. The programme has focused primarily on “how to deliver training courses” on cybercrime and electronic evidence.

The course was born out of the consideration that being subject-matter experts on a specific topic, technology or business, does not mean that one has the capacity to effectively share the expertise and know-how with other professionals or colleagues: this requires special skills in training or coaching. In other words, substantive knowledge and ability to train do not come as a package. Whilst some experts are natural-born trainers or have a natural flair or talent for training, others might need to be “made” trainers.

The course is aimed at ensuring that training courses implemented at domestic level are in line with the principles of “adult education”, and sufficiently hands-on so as to be able to address not only knowledge but also the skills and practical competences of participants, using a variety of different methods that will also make them able to trigger interest amongst members of the judiciary.

This training course started to be delivered in February 2022 and will be implemented in all iPROCEEDS-2 countries/area so to increase the available pool of domestic trainers and their knowledge.
