Online Course 2006/2022/ONL - Trafficking in human beings - Investigation of the digital business model of human traffickers
Date: 
19 April 2022 to 06 May 2022
Organiser: 
CEPOL
Description: 

The overall objective of the training activity is to enhance the knowledge of law enforcement officials on the impact of the digital technology on the modus operandi of human traffickers, to improve their digital skills to identify victims and to detect and investigate cases of trafficking in human beings.

The course is targeting practitioners and will have a strong focus on the detection and investigation of human trafficking committed online, including dedicated sessions on the use of OSINT and tracking digital money flows.

The learning process highlights a learner-centred approach and will accommodate interactive, participatory and practical orientated principles. The active contribution of the learner is key and all participants are expected to be ready and open to share their experience.
The activity involves didactic learning through online presentations by subject matter experts, virtual interactive work. The learners will need to exchange ideas with other participants virtually and complete small tasks/assignments, then share the results of these tasks between each other and debate them collectively. Moreover, preparatory assignments will be given to prepare for the activity. The course will include both pre-course and post course activities to prologue the learning process.

Participants are expected to study around 2 hours per day during this period in order to be able to complete the activity. While there is a flexibility and learners can progress at their own pace, they shall be available for completing the course tasks and follow the course continuously, on a daily basis.

A couple of scheduled/synchronous events are foreseen where learners are all recommended to attend, such as the kick off webinar delivered on day 1.

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.
