Training Aid is a two-year project co-funded by the European Commission DG Home Affairs under the program “Law Enforcement Training” to prevent radicalization, equipping front line practitioners with the skills to detect radicalization in various settings and providing them with the tools to react in an appropriate manner.

Training Aid will facilitate the integration of member states counter-radicalization efforts establishing common procedures for highly-specialized training methodologies and integrating specialized topics such as strategic planning and fundamental rights by using blended technologies for synchronic and a-synchronic training delivery.

Training Aid will design a training course with interactive virtual environments. 48 professionals will be recruited in order to deliver the training courses around Europe and reach more than 1000 front line practitioners.

The Target groups of this project are:

  • Law Enforcement Agencies
  • Prison & Probation staff
  • Europol
  • Eurojust
  • Cepol
  • Police Academies
  • Judiary staff

Training Aid project will organize Expert Users Panels in Spain, Germany and Latvia. Furthermore, the project will organize "Training of the Trainers" sessions in Germany, Czech Republic and Latvia in order to deliver training courses to reach more than 1.000 frontline practitioners all around Europe.
