Counter terrorism training
Prevent is one strand of the government counter-terrorism strategy CONTEST which aims to identify people at risk of radicalisation or supporting terrorism.
For more information on Prevent and reporting activity or strange behaviour please see counter terrorism.
Prevent duty - Prevent is a statutory duty under Section 26 of the Counter Terrorism and Security Act 2015 for many agencies. This means that we must have "due regard to the need to prevent people being drawn into terrorism" in our day to day work. All front line staff from specified agencies need to have an awareness of Prevent to comply with this new legislation.
There are several courses available to help develop your understanding of the new Prevent Duty. A brief outline and the target audience for each course is included on this page.
Workshop to raise awareness of Prevent (WRAP)
This half-day training course is for practitioners who have little or no knowledge of the Prevent Agenda and work in communities or with vulnerable people. WRAP is aimed specifically at front line staff from county, district and borough councils, elected members, police, prisons, probation, community rehabilitation companies, health, social care and schools and early years providers. It is recommended for headteachers and designated safeguarding leads.
