PREVENT

PREVENT 2

Prevent is one of four strands of the government’s counter-terrorism strategy, known as Contest. It was created by the Labour government in 2003 and its remit was widened by the coalition government in 2011.

The other strands are: Prepare; Protect; and Pursue.

Prevent is designed to support people at risk of joining extremist groups and carrying out terrorist activities.

In practice it aims for police and other organisations to build relations across the UK and requires faith leaders, teachers, doctors and others to refer any suspicions about people to a local Prevent body. An assessment is then made about whether further action is needed.

In partnership with Applied Business Academy, we would like to offer you this course as an introduction to PREVENT.

Objectives of this course:

  • Understand terminology of radicalisation, extremism, terrorism
  • Demonstrate an understanding of who is vulnerable in our society and how to prevent this
  • Understanding of the overall CONTEST strategy
  • Understanding of Prevent in the community
  • Demonstrate knowledge of how messages of hate are spread online and offline
  • Recognise risks in the workplace

    I would give this 4/5 as the course was good, something which I needed to do to top up my CPD – but I found this one simple to use
