300,000 training courses have already been completed by users of the e-learning platform provided by the Central Anti-Corruption Bureau.
The e-learning platform was created as part of a project financed by a grant from the European Commission in 2013-2015. The platform offers 3 training modules in two language versions, Polish and English. This is one of the few examples of this type of application in Europe.
Three separate training modules are available on the platform:
- Corruption in public administration — contains information on legal and institutional instruments for fighting corruption, anti-corruption regulations, and methods for counteracting the phenomenon; it also contains examples of corruption and tips on how public administration employees should behave when faced with corruption and how they can contribute to curbing it;
- Corruption in business — presents information on systemic and institutional anti-corruption solutions functioning in legal and economic circulation; it also points out economic results of corruption at the interface of the administration and the private sector, for society and the state;
- Counteracting corruption — presents the anti-corruption policy of the state and the issue of whistleblowing, illustrates the role of NGOs in counteracting corruption and social research related to this field, provides information on the impact of corruption on the economy, society, and politics.
The courses are open to everyone interested in anti-corruption issues. The "Corruption in public administration" block enjoys the greatest popularity.
Each module ends with a knowledge test. After passing it, a certificate confirming completion of the course can be generated.
The platform was presented at the 66th Plenary Meeting of the Group of States against Corruption (GRECO), as well as at the forum of the European Commission and the seminar of the United Nations Office on Drugs and Crime (UNODC). It became a model for the platform created by the National Anti-Corruption Unit of Slovakia (NAKA). Additionally, it was included in the list of good practices to be promoted in the European Union within the framework of the research project of the European Commission's Directorate General for Regional and Urban Policies titled "Capacity building to identify and prevent fraud and corruption in the European Structural and Investment Funds (ESI)."
