Courtroom Skills/Giving Evidence - overview

Professionals may find themselves in the witness box giving evidence on behalf of their organisation. Often, professional witnesses feel that they and their organisation are on trial.

Doubt will be cast on the witness’s experience, notes, method of investigation and the procedures followed by them and their organisation. 

This structured Courtroom Skills/Giving Evidence training course will provide you with the knowledge, skills and confidence to present evidence effectively. The procedures for giving evidence, the order of events, the roles of different people in the hearing, and the process of giving evidence will be explained. 

In the afternoon, you’ll be cross-examined by defence lawyers on a case study, statement or report from a completed case based on your own area of work. You’ll then receive feedback on how to survive in the witness box.

The Courtroom Skills/Giving Evidence training course can count towards the 8-day nationally recognised qualification - the Advanced Professional Certificate In Investigative Practice - or towards the 2-day Advanced Award in Advanced Statement/Report Writing & Giving Evidence.
