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:
Prevent Duty Guidance
Channel Duty guidance
Department for Education guidance
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.
Advice for Schools
Educate Against Hate
Inspire (a charity campaign group – raising awareness, championing Muslim women’s rights)
