Course Duration: 53 minutes (approx.)
The Prevent duty forms one part of the UK’s overarching strategy to reduce the threat from terrorism. It is essential that all staff are up to date with their requirements under the Prevent duty and are able to recognise and respond to signs of radicalisation. This is particularly important within a wider safeguarding context, as referenced in the Ofsted Framework and the Keeping Children Safe in Education (KCSiE) 2019 statutory guidance.
Our Essential CPD course on the Prevent duty provides you and your staff with the core content you need to ensure adherence with Prevent policy.
Delivered by subject matter expert, Professor Imran Awan, the course has been divided into three bite-sized modules and has been designed to provide maximum learning potential in the leanest, most cost-effective and most time-efficient manner. It has been produced in high-quality remote video CPD format, which is accessible on any device, anytime, anywhere.
The course consists of learning through video, task completion and further reading/research. Please consider this when planning and allocating your time. To successfully understand and achieve the objectives from the course, learners are expected to engage in all aspects of the learning process and complete all relevant activities to ensure they can successfully apply the knowledge and skills they have gained in their own setting.
