Prevent Radicalisation & Extremism Training in Education
Our Preventing Radicalisation and Extremism Training in Education course explains the best approach to the safeguarding of vulnerable people. You will be shown the signs of what to look for and if necessary, how to raise your concerns. Extremists often target children, and young adults as unfortunately, they can be manipulated when they are experiencing difficulties such as a bereavement, an economic trigger such as losing a job and alienation to name just a few.
The Government introduced a strategy named 'Prevent Duty' which comes under their safeguarding programme 'Contest', with the sole purpose of supporting those who are at risk of being drawn in.
It is vital that those in the educational system understand how incredibly important it is and how crucial that safeguarding training is maintained as the young are often easily influenced and impressionable when suffering from factors such as low self-esteem.
Schools, pre-schools and colleges should include 'Prevent Duty' in their safeguarding duties.
