Holding Difficult Conversations, The Tim Parry Johnathan Ball Foundation for Peace
A bespoke training programme to build confidence and key skills in holding conversations safely and effectively around the topic of extremism. This session is led by the Foundation for Peace, drawing on its work as a leading UK and European deliverer of Prevention based programmes with young people, schools and wider communities.
The Prevent Duty: the obligation on statutory bodies to prevent people becoming drawn into extremism, places significant obligations on schools. There is a need for many frontline staff to acquire the awareness, skills, knowledge, and confidence to ensure that they can spot signs of concern, challenge prejudice constructively, counter extreme ideas and narratives, and provide alternatives to the persuasive made to vulnerable young people. This course will assist school staff to feel more confident in their response to this duty.
