This course gives you a clear and concise overview of the Prevent duty. You'll look at radicalisation and extremism in the UK and gain a nuanced understanding of how a vulnerable person could be drawn into extremist thought. You will consider signs that may indicate an individual may be vulnerable to, or be experiencing, radicalisation, how to respond to your concerns, and how Prevent and the Channel programme work in practice.

This course covers both the individual Prevent responsibilities for frontline workers, and sector-specific responsibilities. The latter is delivered via Choose Your Path content, meaning that you can select the content that is relevant to your job role. Case studies and scenarios are included throughout to give you useful opportunities to apply key learning.
