Prevent Duty: Some Useful Resources and Links

prevent duty useful links and resources

Having worked with Prevent Coordinators and anti-radicalisation groups for some years, we launched our online Prevent course 3 years ago. Coupled with our comprehensive learning management system, our Awareness of Prevent Duty course remains a popular choice, particularly for schools.

However, we do get asked about other online Prevent Duty resources, so here’s the pick of what’s out there:


Government Guidance

Prevent Duty Guidance


Channel Duty guidance


Department for Education guidance



Useful Websites

Let’s Talk About It – Preventing people from becoming terrorists

The aim of this site is to give people a clear and better understanding of both Prevent and Channel, while providing signposting and support for people who are concerned that someone they know may be vulnerable to radicalisation. The site also contains useful information around how to spot the signs that someone may be being radicalised and provides tips on how you can protect yourself.
