CEPOL completes Child Sexual Exploitation virtual classroom activity
28 May 2021

CEPOL completed this week its first e-Workshop series on Child Sexual Exploitation, which comprised of four identical training activities designed for effective virtual classroom work with small groups of participants. The e-Workshop series has taken place online during April and May via the CEPOL online Law Enforcement Education platform LEEd. The aim of this particular training activity was to improve the performance of experienced law enforcement officials, with a minimum of 2 years’ experience in Child Sexual Exploitation investigations, in the area of interviewing Child Sex Offenders (CSO). The learning process focused on sharing best practices, methods, and tools in the area of interviewing CSOs.

Almost 40 participants successfully completed this e-Workshop series. Each e-Workshop consisted of 3-hour classroom activities for three consecutive days with the participation of a small group of 9-10 learners. This online environment offered participants the opportunity for fruitful discussions and knowledge sharing in a unique and informal virtual setting. It also allowed for an in-depth understanding of the topic within the timeframe of the activity.
