The EssentialSkillz Prevent Duty online training is aimed at those who work in educational institutions and are childcare providers in the UK who now have responsibilities under the Counter-Terrorism and Security Act to be vigilant to children and young people who may be at risk of radicalisation and to know what to do if they are identified. The Prevent Duty training focuses on how protecting children and young people from radicalisation is viewed as similar to protecting them from other harms, eg neglect, sexual exploitation, drugs and gangs, and as such, should be considered as part of their wider safeguarding duties. The course discusses what extremism and radicalisation are, how to identify children and young people who might be at risk, and provides suggestions to guide teachers and other employees within schools, colleges, universities and childcare providers on what to do if they identify a child or young person at risk. The course also highlights the importance of services and institutions working together, so that early support can be provided to individuals at risk.

Like all EssentialSkillz courses, this Prevent Duty course can be customised to meet your needs, enabling your workforce to understand the specific policies and procedures you have developed for your organisation. A designated course administrator can edit the text and images within the course, and link to organisation-specific documentation that may be in place, all at no extra cost.
