Delivering and Embedding Your Prevent Duties
Mon 27 March 2017, 13:30 – 17:00 BST
Since September 2015 a statutory duty has applied to all further education and skills providers in relation to Prevent. An Ofsted review last summer found variable progress among colleges and training providers in implementing this key responsibility towards their learners, identifying a range of recommendations – including that Ofsted itself should further raise its expectations of providers to implement all aspects of their Prevent duty.
Led by DfE’s regional Prevent lead, this half day session will offer practical guidance, exercises and support that assists providers to meet their statutory duties in relation to Prevent. The session will cover:
Introduction to Prevent – The Contest Counter-terrorism Strategy and what is Prevent?
Understanding radicalisation and relevance to the sector – to include video case studies and discussion exercise(s)
How do we support people – The Channel scheme explained and group work with actual case study examples
The Prevent Statutory Duty – examination of each area of the Duty for FE including advice on the completion of risk assessments and action plans as required by the Duty with provision of examples and templates to take away.
Current threat from terrorism – overview of the current international, national and regional picture regarding the threat from terrorism and extremism.
