Investigation Level One utilizes a combination of theory-based lectures and hands-on practical exercises involving group tasks and investigation scenarios with professional actors. Participants will work through a range of topics from the start to the conclusion of an investigation –  from the taking of initial statements through to witness interviews to final report writing. Through an effective balance of theory and practical exercises the experienced investigators and facilitators of Hill Advisory Services present a wide array of information via lectures, handouts and participatory exercises. The areas of practical learning in Level One include:

  • The legal and ethical roles and responsibilities of investigators
  • Investigator questioning techniques
  • What investigators require
  • Preparing for the investigation and interview
  • Conducting the interview
  • Assessing information and evidence
  • The mechanics of final report writing
  • The principals of civil law as they relate to the process
  • Witness Statements
  • Report analysis           

Investigation Level Two:

After a course on the fundamentals of Harassment (or any) Investigation it can be tempting to consider yourself an expert. This is something we discuss with every class. The danger is very real. Feeling as if you are an expert can lead to lack of flexibility or a closed minded approach. This can be deadly in the highly emotional and high-stakes landscape of conflict in the workplace.

In Level Two we truly take it to the next level. In addition to more complex interviews, we will advance the conversation to explore the Art of interviewing and the subtleties, not just the basics. In Level Two we will ask more of you and our program focuses intensely on the immediate feedback of our experienced facilitator.

During Level Two, the majority of time in the Program is spent on interviewing witnesses; with interviews occurring throughout. Participants are guided through interviewing witnesses; developing a witness statement, and preparing questions for the witnesses.  On the completion of witness interviews, participants prepare for and conduct re-direct interviews with the primary parties. The areas of practical learning in Level Two are:

  • Interview Preparation
  • Witness Interviews
  • Statement Development
  • Preparation for re-direct interviews
  • Re-direct interviews
  • Weighing evidence and forming conclusions
  • Providing evidence to support conclusions

Level Two study materials are provided to each participant prior to the course.

Note:  Clients who have attended Level One in the past are welcome to join us for Level Two!
