What will I learn?

PREVENT is part of the Government’s counter-terrorism strategy, CONTEST. The purpose of Prevent is to stop people from becoming terrorists or supporting terrorism. This includes countering terrorist ideology and challenging those who promote it, supporting individuals who are especially vulnerable to becoming radicalised, and working with sectors and institutions where the risk of radicalisation is assessed to be high. The deradicalisation programme is known as Channel. As of February 2015, all schools have a statutory duty to have due regard to the prevention of terrorism. This ‘duty’ does not extend to teachers but enables schools to embed safeguarding against radicalisation within their standard safeguarding policies.

What are you going to learn about?

You’ll learn about what PREVENT is and how it might apply to your school. This is a CURATED Learning Trunk built for you from content sourced online.
