Security training experts, including two Generals, an Air Force Group Captain and a former defence minister who discovered the benefit of online learning during a spell in prison, will be the keynote speakers at this year’s Security & Defence Learning (SDL) in Berlin on November 30th. The seventh annual SDL, which is hosted by the New Security Foundation, will take place at the InterContinental Hotel as an official pre-conference forum of ONLINE EDUCA BERLIN.
Gp Capt Philip Sagar, Officer Commanding, Generic Education Training Centre for the Royal Air Force, will address the Security & Defence Learning Forum in Berlin, at the end of November, on the Royal Air Force’s experience of technology-assisted learning. The Rector Commandant of the Polish Defence University, Major General Romauld Ratajczak, will speak about innovative approaches to education and training at the Polish Defence University.
The Security & Defence Learning Forum, now in its 7th year, will also hear from Dr Harald Niggemann of Germany’s Federal Office of Information Security. He will speak about the foundation of a modular training centre in Germany and its focus on preventative cyber security. Jonathan Aitken, former British Cabinet Minister and prisoner, is to address the subject of education in prison, focusing on learning, radicalisation and rehabilitation issues.
Harold Elletson, Chairman of The Security & Defence Forum’s organising body, The New Security Foundation, said:
“Security & Defence Learning will examine important issues for training in several major sectors. We will be covering such subjects as pilot training, innovation, border security, prison learning and the use of serious games by police forces. Conference participants will also be fascinated to hear Jonathan Aitken’s view on learning, rehabilitation and radicalisation in prisons.”
