Upcoming Programs

Witness Assessment Program

Date: 18 to 19-Sep-2014

The workshop style program encourages a rigorous and evidence-based approach to the assessment of witnesses with an emphasis on the topics of reliability and credibility. Expert speakers will also discuss the effect of some social and cultural factors on witness assessment. At the completion of the program participants will be able to make more accurate decisions about witness reliability and credibility and communicate their findings in cogent, reasoned judgments.

360 Degree Feedback

Date: 6-Oct-2014 to 30-Oct-2015

360 degree feedback is a process in which participants receive confidential, anonymous feedback from the people who work around them. It is an opportunity to recognise and reflect on strengths and weaknesses and use the results to improve both efficiency and personal satisfaction.

There are no set dates for the feedback process, when there are sufficient numbers of interested people, the College can start the process.
