The Counter-Terrorism and Security Act 2015 places a new legal duty on specified authorities to have “due regard to the need to prevent people from being drawn into terrorism”. This includes ensuring frontline staff have a good understanding of Prevent and how to refer when concerns are raised. We recommend two training products be selected based on your role and training requirements.
Workshop to Raise Awareness of Prevent (WRAP)
WRAP is a 2-hour workshop to raise awareness of the Prevent Strategy, understand the radicalisation process, and identify appropriate safeguarding referral processes. WRAP is particularly valuable for anyone working directly with families, young people, vulnerable adults or have a safeguarding responsibility within their organisation. We recommend all such staff attend a WRAP workshop, which is currently delivered free of charge.
For Portsmouth City Council staff this should be booked via the learning gateway, alternatively, others interested in Prevent training should email firstname.lastname@example.org
