Course Content

What will you learn on this course?

Prevent, a strand of the Government’s counter-terrorism strategy, intersects with the safeguarding of young people and children. This course is designed to raise your understanding and help you to relate Prevent to your own interaction with children. It is suitable for anyone who may have contact with children, young people and their families as part of their daily activities.

On completion of this course, the learner will:

  • Have an awareness of the Prevent strand of the Government's counter-terrorism strategy and how it relates to safeguarding
  • Understand the range of legislation and guidance surrounding safeguarding and the protection of children and young people
  • Have an awareness of how a person might be vulnerable to terrorism, or to supporting violent extremism
  • Be able to demonstrate an awareness of the range of indicators that might suggest a vulnerability to extremism
  • Understand their responsibility to report concerns
  • Understand the safeguarding options available for children and young people vulnerable to extremism, and the role of 'CHANNEL'
  • Be able to demonstrate an awareness of the actions to take in the event of suspected radicalisation

Module 1- Pre-course Assessment

This module uses four scenarios to help you assess your current level of knowledge and begin thinking about the issues and surrounding radicalisation.

Module 2 - Overview

At its heart, Prevent is another form of safeguarding and exists to stop people supporting terrorism. Groups who pose a threat to the UK seek to recruit people through a process of radicalisation. Whether right-wing Nazi sympathisers or ISIS, we do not need to understand the ideologies being promoted, but we do need to be aware of the process of radicalising young people.

By the end of this module, you will have an overview of the aims of Prevent.

Module 3 - Legislation and Guidance

The Education Act (2002) sets out the responsibilities of Local Education Authorities (LEAs) in relation to ensuring that children are free from harm. Safeguarding against radicalisation is part of this responsibility.

People who come into regular contact with vulnerable children and young people have a role to play in the prevention of radicalisation as part of the wider, inter-agency initiatives to safeguard children. Ofsted inspectors will expect to see an approach to keeping children safe from radicalisation and extremism.

At the end of this module, you will have a better understanding of the multi-agency approach to safeguarding against extremism. You will also have an overview of the legal guidance and framework, and the requirements for safeguarding in an education environment.

Module 4 - Vulnerabilities

Vulnerability to radicalisation can be the result of many different motivators and can manifest in many ways. Although terrorism is unlikely to be the cause of changes in behaviour, we need to be aware of the possibility and be able to offer support.

By the end of this module, you will be more able to recognise indicators of potential vulnerability to radicalisation in a young person.

Module 5 - Identifying Children at Risk

A number of factors can be involved when someone is at risk of terrorist activity or radicalisation. As well as an increased use of key phrases associated with the rhetoric of hate speech, the young person may display several other indicators, such as wearing a particular ‘uniform’, or avoiding certain groups of their peers.

By the end of this module, you will be more familiar with the behaviours and actions that could point to a child at risk.

Module 6 - Safeguarding in Prevent

Radicalisation is a process, and Prevent can be a way of intervening when a child or young person is taking the path towards extremism. The move towards support of a radical ideology will involve developing a rhetoric of hate towards a particular group of people. This module looks at the methods employed by Prevent and, where appropriate, CHANNEL to refocus the young person to a less radical viewpoint.

Module 7 - Final Assessment

Using a range of scenarios, you will now take all that you have learned and apply it to an assessment of your knowledge. The final assessment is your opportunity to show how much you have absorbed and why it is so important to have Prevent Duty awareness training.

Once you have passed your assessment, you will be able to download your certificate. Your pass rate will be 70% but don’t worry if you do not pass the first time, as you can take the test multiple times.
