Implementing onsite training activities by partners amid the COVID-19 pandemic
16 November 2021

With the resumption of face-to-face learning at CEPOL, the second half of the year has seen so far a prolific implementation of onsite training activities, included those delivered by our framework partners across Europe. Through continuous and effective cooperation with these partners, CEPOL continues contributing to the implementation of a specialised training offer available to more than 1.5 million law enforcement officials in the EU.

The resumption of face-to-face classroom activity has been greeted with pleasure by participants. Certain courses could not be taught online during the Covid-19 outbreak because the electronic medium does not permit the best method on instruction. In the past months, participants have been able to take full advantage of the physical learning experience and the possibility to connect and network with peers.

Matthieu Morel, participant from France in the CEPOL activity “Violent attacks against public - Amok shootings”, held in October, in Veroia (Greece) stressed the importance of the networking component and defined it as

“privileged moments to further discuss national best practices and to draw bridges between European law enforcement actors.”

Vyron Vyronos, expert from Cyprus in this same granted training activity, highlighted this component as one of the most important ones in the learning process:

“Each CEPOL training activity should have three important pillars: The first is education; the second is networking among the participants; and the third is the acquaintance with the culture, manners and customs of the host Member State.”

CEPOL’s blog includes the stories from the field as shared by our partners illustrating what has been going on in different parts of Europe. You can learn more about our partners’ stories here:
