Sneak Peak

 

Learn more about Behavioural Profiling

Understanding behavioural profiling is important in many different careers.

This short 20 hour course gives you an insight into the use of behavioural profiling in a number of different fields, including –

  • Education
  • Criminal behaviour
  • Marketing
  • Recruit
  • Human resources
  • Promotion

A behavioural profile helps us to understand more about people and the type of people that do certain things. Why does this person commit crime? Why does this customer buy their products online? Who will buy our product? What characteristics will a person with this condition show?

By understanding more about people, we can determine whether they are the right person for the job, what type of behaviour they may display and how we are able to help and support them.
