Prevent Awareness Training

Very relevant and important for all. The most interesting and inspiring training I have ever attended."

 

All specified authorities subject to the Prevent Duty need to provide appropriate training for staff.  As have worked in this field have a wealth of experience in the strategic and practical implementation of the Duty.

Our extensive knowledge and experience of Prevent and safeguarding enables us to develop bespoke, informative and inspirational training for local government, education and childcare, health and social care, criminal justice and police. We have successfully trained thousands of professionals in Prevent, including chief executives, elected officials, headteachers and frontline staff. Please see our testimonials page for some examples of recent feedback.

We cover Prevent Training in the North West, Midlands and North Wales.

Our training will enable you to:

- Understand key definitions such as extremism, radicalisation and terrorism, the relationship between them and how they are relevant to your role  
- Recognise the vulnerabilities and warning signs of radicalisation
- Understand how to prevent people from becoming drawn to extremist ideologies and terrorism through Prevent and Channel
- Learn about relevant case studies from experienced Prevent practitioners and former extremists
- Know how to obtain appropriate support to safeguard vulnerable individuals

We will empower you with the knowledge and skills to understand and implement the Prevent Duty by embedding it within existing safeguarding frameworks. Our open and honest sessions will give you the confidence to debate controversial issues, implement British values and challenge extremist arguments. The priority of our training is the welfare and safeguarding of children and young people.

We recognise that there is no 'one size fits all' approach to understanding radicalisation. Our competitively priced training will be tailored to your individual needs depending on your organisation, role, location and experience. As well as staff training we provide inputs for students, workshops and conferences. We can also assist with the strategic implementation of Prevent through risk assessments, vetting policies and safeguarding advice consistent with the latest Ofsted and government guidance.

We also offer impactive training on a range of other safeguarding issues, including hate crime, bullying, knife crime and drug awareness.

"Wow! Most insightful, thought provoking, impactful session I have attended for a long time. Thank you!"
 
"This was one of the most interesting training events I have attended. Very informative and I feel I have much more knowledge about the subject and my duties within the legislation."

The Prevent Duty is now a statutory obligation for a host of specified agencies. Our aim is to ensure that your Prevent training not only fulfils your legal requirements, but that it is also meaningful and engaging. 

We are passionate about Prevent and safeguarding. As former Prevent Officers we know that it is ultimately a safeguarding duty that has made a positive impact on many people's lives. Our training is unique because it is informed by our successful history of supporting vulnerable individuals and protecting communities. Where appropriate we like to share some of our experiences and case studies to bring the training to life and add context. We highlight the reality of Prevent delivery and how it works on a local, day to day level.

Our training is practical and tailored depending on the audience, organisation and location so that whatever your circumstances our training will be relevant to you.

We offer a range of training options but as a general guide our Prevent Duty training can comprehensively cover issues such as:

  • CONTEST (UK Government counter terrorism strategy)
  • What is Prevent? 
  • What is Channel?
  • Key definitions
  • Counter-Terrorism and Security Act 2015
  • British values
  • Ideologies
  • Current threats
  • Online radicalisation and social media
  • Case studies
  • Warning signs and vulnerabilities
  • Reporting concerns 
  • How to embed Prevent within existing safeguarding frameworks

Under Section 26 of the Counter-Terrorism and Security Act 2015, certain bodies (including local government, education and childcare, health and social care, criminal justice and police) must have "due regard to the need to prevent people from being drawn into terrorism."

The latest Department for Education guidance on keeping children safe in education states that protecting children from radicalisation should be seen as part of schools' and colleges' wider safeguarding responsibilities, similar to protecting them from other forms of abuse. It also stresses that as a minimum, schools should ensure that the designated safeguarding lead undertakes Prevent awareness training and is able to provide advice and support to staff on protecting children from the risk of radicalisation.

Radicalisation and extremism can be daunting and complex subjects but we will support you and empower you with the confidence to ensure that your organisation is ready for the Prevent Duty. We will help you to safeguard individuals and communities.
