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.
There are a number of free e-learning packages available. To access these, please click on the links below.
This offers an introduction to the Prevent duty, and explains how it aims to safeguard vulnerable people from being radicalised to supporting terrorism or becoming terrorists themselves.

This package builds on the Prevent awareness eLearning training. It is designed to make sure that when we share a concern that a vulnerable individual may be being radicalised, that the referral is robust, informed and with good intention, and that the response to that concern is considered, and proportionate.
This training package is for anyone who may be asked to contribute to, sit on, or even run a Channel Panel. It is aimed at all levels, from a professional asked to input and attend for the first time, to a member of staff new to their role and organising a panel meeting.
