Course Introduction

Whether you work with children, young people or adults, you play a crucial role in keeping individuals safe from harm and promoting their welfare. Safeguarding is something you already do on a day-to-day basis, and part of those safeguarding responsibilities includes protecting vulnerable individuals from being drawn into terrorism.

This aspect of safeguarding has become particularly important as threats and acts of violence linked to extremist ideologies have increased in the UK over the past decade. In 2017 alone, five terrorist attacks in the UK resulted in 36 innocent deaths.

This Prevent Duty Online Training course takes on average 25 minutes to complete.

Course Content

This course aims to help professionals understand what radicalisation, extremism and terrorism are, and how people can become radicalised. For example, where it happens, how long it takes, and what factors might put a person more at risk. Professionals who work in educational and training organisations, local authorities, prisons, police and health bodies need to understand their responsibilities under the Prevent Duty and the importance of working together.

This course outlines those responsibilities, as well as how organisations can help prevent individuals from being radicalised, for example by creating an awareness, promoting British values and building a constructive and inclusive environment.

However, even with greater education and awareness, radicalisation and extremism can still occur. As part of the Prevent Duty, you need to know how to identify signs of radicalisation and extremism and understand what to do if you are concerned or have been made aware of radicalisation. This course uses case studies and the three safeguarding steps – notice, check and share – to help you identify signs and get individuals the help they need.

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