Walkgrove created a range of modules to support high-quality specialist training for anti-crime professionals.

The training need

Walkgrove was commissioned to create a range of e-learning modules for the NHS Counter Fraud Authority (CFA) foundation level anti-crime specialist courses. The NHS CFA leads on tackling crime within the NHS and provides a programme of accredited training and subsequent Continuous Professional Development for NHS counter-fraud and security management specialists.

As part of the suite, the organisation required several modules on basic methods of fraud and crime prevention, deterrence and reduction as well as best practice professional principles for anti-crime workers.

The NHS CFA accredited training programme includes detailed face-to-face sessions and the e-learning modules needed to prepare learners for these.

Our bespoke learning solution

Walkgrove created four high-quality bespoke e-learning modules to equip NHS anti-crime specialists with foundational knowledge in combating crime inside the health service.

Three 35-minute courses focus on crime prevention, deterrence and reduction. The first provides an introduction to the crimes of bribery, fraud and corruption and basic steps for identifying risks, reporting suspicions and accessing key contacts. The second familiarises learners with key measures of fraud deterrence and prevention, including how to draft a fraud prevention exercise. The third course focuses on the principles, methods and procedures of reducing crime.

The fourth 50-minute custom e-learning course examines best practice principles for anti-crime specialists. It sets out the expected standards of behaviour and the consequences of not following them.

In addition to exploring relevant theory and legislation, learners apply their knowledge to a range of scenarios. Specialists answer regular reflective questions in their own words to create a printable personalised handout they can refer to in classroom sessions. Each course finishes with a validating assessment, successful completion of which entitles learners to progress to the next stage of their blended training.
