Online Course 5/2020: Child trafficking
09 November 2020 to 20 November 2020

The course focuses on the detection and investigation of child trafficking, including international cooperation and the interviewing of children and the rights and protection of trafficked children.

This activity is part of EMPACT - Trafficking in Human Beings priority within the EU Policy Cycle tackling organised crime.

The learning strategy is focused to support the participants to achieve the learning outcomes by following a learner-centred approach and interactive, participatory principles in accordance with andragogic theory. The active contribution of the learner is key and all participants are expected to be ready and open to share their experience.

The entire activity will be implemented online between 9-20 November 2020.

Participants are expected to study around 1,5 hours per day during this period in order to be able to complete the activity. While learners can progress at their own pace, they will need to be available continuously for completing the course tasks and take the final quiz in order to be able, at the end, to obtain the course certificate. Any scheduled live events where attendance is required in real-time will be announced in the in the confirmation letter and also in the course environment. The course will include a pre-course activity in form of a live webinar dedicated to child trafficking. The link to the webinar will be shared with selected participants in due time. An online post-course activity will conclude the learning programme.

The training will be held in English; therefore, it is essential that applicants possess appropriate language skills.
