Prevent training for schools
Here are the key resources, workshops and training programmes to help you understand Prevent and how to keep your students safe from extremism and radicalisation.
It’s important you understand Prevent and the role you play in helping your school meet its Prevent duty. There is a variety of training available. Whatever option you choose, the key thing is that all staff know what to do if they have a concern.
- Prevent duty training
An introduction to radicalisation and how to support students who may be at risk.
- Workshop to Raise Awareness of Prevent (WRAP)
A workshop with video content that explains Prevent, the radicalisation process, how to identify at-risk students, how to raise concerns and what an appropriate response looks like. Local Prevent partners may be able to help you organise a workshop if you want personalised WRAP training. Contact your local authority for advice.
- Channel General Awareness training
An online course for teachers that explains the Channel programme and how Prevent works to provide a proportionate response in supporting vulnerable people who haven’t committed a crime.
- Counter-Extremism: Narratives and Conversations (London Grid for Learning)
An interactive video resource which lays out the principles applying to all forms of extremism. It helps teachers counter extremist narratives and helps facilitate discussion on respect, tolerance, shared values and community cohesion.
- Prevent Toolkit for Schools
A step-by-step guide on how to implement the Prevent duty in your school. The toolkit includes ideas, resources and best practice approaches to support primary and secondary school practitioners.
