Interactive staff awareness course designed to raise understanding of the statutory responsibility for the Prevent duty within education.
PREVENT AWARENESS TRAINING
Updated December 2023:
The Prevent duty: an introduction for those with safeguarding responsibilities.
Since July 2015 all schools and early years providers have been subject to a duty under section 26 of the Counter-terrorism and Security Act, to have due regard to the need to prevent people from being drawn into terrorism – this is known as the Prevent Duty.
The statutory duty explains the importance of Prevent Awareness training to equip staff to identify children at risk of being drawn into terrorism and to challenge extremist ideas.
Our safeguarding approach covers radicalisation and extremism within society, the identification of vulnerable individuals, and increased recognition of signs and indicators.
Updated to include The Shawcross Review and latest guidance, the course considers how extremism can cause harm, and how the process of radicalisation can occur within different environments.
The course specifically addresses Right Wing and Islamist extremism, and considers hate crime and misogyny/misandry through the online lens of social media and fake news, including the responsibility for schools to ensure effective filtering and monitoring systems. Videos are embedded for engagement, and interactive discussion sections ensure collaborative input and understanding.
Our 2-hour whole school session has been developed to ensure staff and volunteers have:
A clearer understanding of their role & responsibilities towards your Prevent duty
Recognise the latest signs and indicators of radicalisation and extremism
Know what to do if they suspect a child has radical or extreme views, is being exploited or is at risk
Be able to handle a disclosure effectively
Understand the referral process for Prevent and Channel, who to contact and their role within it.
It is available for onsite or virtual delivery and all attendees will receive a Participation Certificate.
The setting will receive an Information Booklet detailing links to all resources referred to throughout the training.
Optional extras to support compliance within Keeping Children Safe in Education
Delegate online assessment which provides your mechanism to evidence your staff/volunteer understanding of the training content and their safeguarding responsibilities.
Access for the current academic year to a recorded video of the training for your school key stakeholders who were unable to attend the live session or for inclusion in your new staff safeguarding induction programme.
