Feedback - July 2017 Intelligence Analysis Course - 25/07/2017
From 3 different students...1 - - I enjoyed the course thoroughly, especially as it provided more of a way to think about HOW to tackle the problem / crime rather than carrying out number crunching (as some analysis work can be). The course provided excellent tools into problem solving (by using the Kipling factors), how to create & test hypotheses and how to develop an inference(s). 2 - Ted was an incredible lecturer. Very knowledgeable and interesting. His delivery was captivating and I could have listened to him for the full 2 weeks. I found Ted to be very supportive and encouraging. 3 - I thoroughly enjoyed the whole experience, I enjoyed the group working although some of the tasks required a little more time or possibly just a little time for a team building exercise prior to the task...a big thank-you for the course.

From 3 different students....1 - Balanced mix of theory and practical work delivered in appropriate order. All tutors were amazing – loved how they all had real-life examples to demonstrate ideas and theories. 2 - I though the trainers were excellent and provided great examples of how I could apply the training in my role. They were able to answer all of the questions people asked. 3 - The variety of analytical tools that were explained is exceptionally useful and exactly what I was looking for in the course as this was a large knowledge gap for me.
Feedback - Researcher Course in July 2017 - 25/07/2017
From 3 different students...1 - I thought The lecturer was excellent. He was engaging, manage to gauge the level of the class (and when we needed a coffee break!), answered everyone’s questions and was incredibly knowledgeable. He made the course extremely interesting and I thoroughly enjoyed it. 2 - Great course with a lot of insight, all the handouts and paperwork given is a plus as well. Learnt more in those few days than in my research module at university! 3 - The course was not simply sitting and watching; I enjoyed the elements of contributions such as the psychological and lateral thinking exercises which really made me think and illustrated perfectly alternative perspectives. The team exercises broke up the day so it was not simply an hour’s long lecture. In all Ted was a far better teacher/lecturer than any of my university lecturers and knew a lot more about criminology and crime than most of my criminology lecturers for my MA.
