'PREVENT' is short for 'Preventing Violent Extremism'. The overall aim of Prevent is to stop people becoming terrorists or supporting violent extremism by raising awareness of the issues and supporting people who may be vulnerable.

CHANNEL GUIDANCE - Channel is part of the Prevent strategy. The process is a multi-agency approach to identify and provide support to individuals who are at risk of being drawn into terrorism. https://www.gov.uk/government/publications/channel-guidance

Virtual College Course Prevent training module

Virtual College Course has a Prevent training module. They created this toolkit to complement the face to face WRAP training and the Home Office has approved the content for use across multi-agency settings and has included it on their list of approved training in their catalogue.

It approaches the topic very sensitively from a Safeguarding perspective and is very engaging. It's a really great way to ensure that all staff are trained quickly and effectively.

The delivery system can also provide learner tracking and impact assessments across all roles and departments.

Please feel free to take a look at their website for more information: http://www.safeguardingchildrenea.co.uk/radicalisation-and-prevent-duty-training/
