Our Prevent Duty online training course explains the main points of the Prevent Duty and the measures that schools and childcare providers must take in order to comply with it.

Examples and scenarios will make you aware of the indicators that a child may be vulnerable to radicalisation and what to do if you believe a child is at risk.

For employers, it is an easy way to ensure that they comply with the legal responsibilities under Section 26 of the Counter-Terrorism and Security Act 2015.

The course takes approximately 1 hour to complete.

What is meant by Prevent Duty?

The Prevent Duty is a duty on certain organisations to safeguard vulnerable people and communities from being radicalised to supporting terrorism or becoming terrorists.

All schools and registered childcare providers have to conform with Prevent. They need to have clear procedures in place and fulfil their obligations under Prevent to protect students from the threat of radicalisation and extremism. The Prevent Duty is part of a school’s or childcare provider’s wider duty to safeguard children.

Read our short article to learn more on Who needs to comply with the Prevent duty.

Why is Prevent Duty training important?

In order for school staff and childcare providers to fulfil the Prevent Duty, they must be able to identify the warning signs that a child may be vulnerable to radicalisation and know what to do if they suspect that a child is at risk. Also, if a child is voicing extremist opinions, school staff and childcare providers should be able to respond proportionately and challenge their extremist ideas.

Our Prevent Duty training provides clear examples and scenarios that will make you aware of the indicators that a child may be vulnerable to radicalisation and what to do if you believe a child is at risk. Also, it will provide guidance on how to appropriately respond to extremism.
