Online Course 52/2021: SIRENE Officers – Level 2
11 October 2021 to 15 October 2021

The aim of the activity is to support the effective functioning of cooperation based on the SIS legal instruments, the SIRENE Manual and the Catalogue of Recommendations and Best Practice for SIS/SIRENE in order to enhance security within the Schengen Area. It also aims to enhance the knowledge of the SIRENE operators in the area of missing/vulnerable persons and children at risk of abduction.

The learning strategy focuses on enhancing the knowledge of the SIRENE officers to ensure the fast and high quality information exchange between the Schengen countries.

The learning process highlights a learner-centred approach and 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 and collaborative learning by group 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.

The course will be delivered online between 11 October - 15 October 2021. Participants are expected to study around 3-4 hours per day during this period in order to be able to complete the activity. The participants should be available for completing the course tasks and follow the course continuously, on a daily basis.

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. Participants will need to complete the LEEd registration procedure in order to get access to the course page.
