All day
15 March 2021 to 07 May 2021

The course aims to enable participants to achieve a Common European Framework of References for languages (CEFR) to the level of B1 - independent user, in Police English Language.

The specific objectives for participants of this course are:

  1. To have the ability, in accordance with CEFR, to express themselves briefly in familiar situations and to deal in a general way with non-routine information:
  2. To enrich their Police English Language vocabulary and use it appropriately in situations where police specific terminology is required.
  3. To practice cooperation on a European level, which they can later on utilise in cross-border communication.

The course is scheduled to take place in the period of 15 March – 7 May 2021. The curriculum content will focus on online self-paced, as well as, trainer guided activities and related assignments.

Reading, speaking, writing and listening skills will be practiced in the context of the abovementioned topics.

The content of the course will be presented in CEPOL's virtual learning environment where participants will engage in activities extending and practising their Police English Language skills.

Participants are expected to study around 12-15 hour per week in order to be able to achieve the aim. This course is fully flexible and learners can progress along the weekly activities at their own pace, however sometimes they are offered to attend real time sessions with the trainers and must submit certain assignments on time. Participants should follow the course continuously, preferably on a daily basis.

Nomination: The online course offers 100 seats altogether. In case you are interested to participate, please contact your local CEPOL National Unit / CEPOL National Contact Point at your earliest convenience to receive detailed information on the application process. Deadline for nominations by CEPOL National Units: 19 February 2021.

26 April 2021 to 07 May 2021

The overall objective of the training activity is to increase law enforcement capacity in tackling cross-border drug trafficking, including precursors and dismantling organised crime groups by understanding new forms of modus operandi and drug supply chain. The course is organised in the framework of the OAP 2021 of EMPACT Synthetic Drugs/NPS and Cannabis-Cocaine-Heroin priorities within the EU Policy Cycle.

The learning process highlights a learner-centred approach and will accommodate practical and experiential orientated principles. The activity involves didactic learning through lectures and presentations by subject matter experts.


  • Trends and developments in the area of drug production and trafficking
  • Cross-border investigations against OCGs
  • International coordinated approach
  • Drug-related EMPACT priority areas
  • Support by EU agencies
  • Financial investigations and asset recovery

The activity is divided in three learning phases:

  • Independent Learning Phase/Activity stage: 15 hours.
  • Contact Learning Phase/Online discussion: 3 hours.
  • Experiential Learning Phase/Post-course materials: 3 hours.

The course will be delivered online over a period of 2 weeks, between 26 April and 7 May 2021. While there is no specific time slot when participants shall be available for completing the course tasks, they should follow the training continuously. This is important, as they will need to exchange their ideas with other participants virtually and complete tasks/assignments then share the results of these tasks between each other and debate them collectively. Completion of the course would require 1-1.5 hour investment per working day during the length of two weeks.

The course will be held entirely in English, therefore it is essential that nominated officials possess appropriate language skills (at least B2 level). The entire activity will be carried out online on CEPOL’s Law Enforcement Education Platform (LEEd), hence the physical presence of participants will not be required.


In case you are interested to attend, please contact your local CEPOL National Unit / CEPOL National Contact Point as soon as possible. Deadline for nominations by CEPOL National Units: 26 March 2021.

Selected participants have to be registered to CEPOL's online Law Enforcement Education platform LEEd where the online activity will take the place.
