Prevent Awareness


The Prevent Duty was introduced as part of the Counter Terrorism and Security Act 2015. It came into force on 1 July 2015 and states that local authorities and other institutions must have "due regard to the need to prevent people from being drawn into terrorism". Amongst many other requirements, this means that we must be equipped to be able to identify and support any individual who might be vulnerable to radicalisation. This training session on Prevent Awareness offers an introduction to the Prevent duty and explains how it aims to safeguard vulnerable people from being radicalised to supporting terrorism or becoming terrorists themselves.

This one-hour briefing will be delivered by practitioners from the Prevent Team.


Participants must have completed Introduction to Safeguarding Children and Young People (or another introductory level safeguarding course relevant to their role) before they can access this training.
