Continuing Professional Development (CPD) Courses

The Department of Language and Linguistic Science offers Continuing Professional Development in a range of areas, from linguistic science to language teaching 

Forensic Speech Science

The Department of Language and Linguistic Science offers Continuing Professional Development courses in Forensic Speech and Audio. These courses are delivered in conjunction with speech and audio experts from JP French Associates, the UK’s longest-established and leading independent provider of forensic speech and audio services to law enforcement, prosecution and defence agencies.

These CPD courses provide participants with an understanding of both the theory and practice of forensic speech and audio analysis. In addition to being introduced to underlying concepts and principles, participants will gain hands-on experience of analysing real casework recordings. 

Please contact James Tompkinson (james.tompkinson@jpfrench.com) for more information.

These courses are taught by staff in the Department of Language and Linguistic Science and Department of Sociology and cover key analytic tools and methodological techniques used in analysing social interaction across a range of settings.
