Details of further training opportunities below.

Meeting the Prevent Duty

From the 1 July, the new Counter Terrorism and Security Act 2015 places a duty, known as the Prevent duty, on all schools and academies, to have due regard to prevent people from being drawn into terrorism. All staff working in schools must know how to recognise, respond and refer children and young people who are vulnerable and at risk of radicalisation. Schools also have a key role in building children’s resilience to being drawn in to terrorism.

 

Radicalisation and Extremism Awareness and Prevention staff training

The session will also offer an opportunity to consider how schools can provide a safe environment for children and young people to explore these issues and build resilience.
