Code: PCC/22/377 Achieving Best Evidence (ABE)

Course Overview

Updated in line with new Ministry of Justice ABE Guidance 2022

This is a highly specialised, intensive course that complies with current ABE legal requirements.

The Ministry of Justice’s guidance, ‘Achieving Best Evidence in Criminal Proceedings’ is clear: “Provided both the police officer and social worker have been adequately trained to interview child witnesses in accordance with the guidance set out in this document, there is no reason why either should not lead the interview”. Our training maintains the child-centred approach to safeguarding – endorsed again within the guidance: “The decision as to who leads the interview should depend on who is able to establish the best rapport with the child”. Many of our trainers’ delegates have said how beneficial (if not essential) this training is in their day-to-day interactions with children and young people as well as making a significant contribution to their Section 47 enquiries

This is a 5 day intensive course for Social Workers with limited exposure to ABE. Both courses consist of 2 days theory, 2 days practice and on the 5 day model a visit and practice session at a local interview suite (where possible)

This is a course that has a major impact on our delegates and the importance of selecting the right course is paramount. For all training that includes practice, we utilize highly skilled Adult Actors who play the parts of both vulnerable Adults and Children in differing scenarios. The importance of equipping Social Workers with all the correct tools and skills cannot be stressed enough and their potential victims deserve the best level of ABE interviewing possible!
