Questions & Answers

All authorities subject to the duty must make sure they provide appropriate training for staff.

The Prevent duty guidance makes it clear that frontline staff who engage with the public need to understand what radicalisation means and why people may be vulnerable to being drawn into terrorism as a consequence of it. They need to be aware of what we mean by “extremism”, the relationship between extremism and terrorism, the measures available to prevent people being drawn into terrorism and how to challenge extremist ideology. They also need to understand how to find support for people who might be exploited by radicalising influences.

Institutions covered by the Prevent duty may wish to consider further training resources available within the Prevent Training Catalogue to support their implementation of the Prevent duty. This can be accessed here.

An e-Learning training package is available to help implement the Prevent duty. This training is introductory and provides a foundation on which to develop further knowledge around the risks of radicalisation and the roles involved in supporting those at risk. It can be accessed here.
