Writing Advanced Investigation Reports and Allegations

Short Course

Course Overview

Day 1 – Allegations
Writing good allegations is a science, needing a robust approach and a good understanding of the risks and rights involved. This course provides learners with a formula and methodology for writing allegations which are driven by procedural fairness and will work within any policy or workplace context. Using real scenarios, issue-spotting exercises, and drafting techniques, the skills in this course will help save time, energy, and conflict during investigations.

Day 2 – Reports
Writing investigation reports is an artform which challenges even the most seasoned investigators. This course outlines a clear procedure for investigation reporting, including every aspect from stepping out a methodology to analysing evidence. The course also includes guidance on the external challenges associated with reporting, including privacy, the perception of bias, and adverse action risks. Learners also receive templates, samples, style guide and key phrases to guide every kind of investigation report.
