Influences of Extremism Leading to Radicalisation


What is Prevent in the UK? Prevent is a government led programme which aims to safeguard vulnerable people from being drawn into terrorism. There is a multi-agency approach, with police working alongside statutory partners and communities to support those at risk from all forms of extremism.

The government training courses are designed, and are appropriate for, staff working in sectors covered by the Prevent duty. These include education, health, local authorities, police, prisons, probation and youth justice. Other sectors that are not covered may also complete this training. You do not have to complete all the courses. You should refer to your organisation's training requirements to determine which courses are appropriate for you.
