The three European projects J-SAFE, MINDb4ACT and JPCOOPS have decided to join forces and organise Training of the Trainer courses covering different topics on radicalisation prevention and investigation. The courses take place in Italy, Germany, Spain, Bulgaria and Malta.

A Training of the Trainers (ToT) is a 4-day face-to-face training course entirely in English, with the purpose of giving the participants the tools and knowledge they need in order to replicate the course in their own country or with any audience they want.This means that those participants interested in organizing a 1-day training course in their own country and in their own language will have the full assistance of the JPCOOPS project.

Training topics

  • Radicalisation in prison – To develop advanced and specialised competencies and abilities for LEAs, judges, prosecutors, intel agencies, lawyers and vetted NGOs working in CT/CVE to identify different types of information within radical mechanisms, classify and transmit it within the procedural justice framework at MS and EU levels as part of the counter-radicalisation measures.
