Radicalisation and Extremism Awareness Project
This interactive and relevant training is aimed at all Safeguarders - to empower you to Recognise, React and Respond and/or Refer children at risk of Radicalisation or Extremist influences.
The new Counter Terrorism and Security Act 2015 includes provisions which place a “duty on specified bodies, including the Police, Prisons, Local Authorities, Schools and Universities, to have due regard to preventing people being drawn into terrorism”. (Theresa May Feb 2015)
All safeguarding and support organisations and authorities subject to this duty, need to ensure they provide appropriate training for staffinvolved in the implementation of this responsibility.
Staff that engage with children must understand what radicalisation means and how young people may become vulnerable to being drawn into extremist and/or terrorist activity. Similarly, all staff need to be aware and understand the relationship between radicalisation and terrorism and how to recognise, react to and refer or report potentially harmful activity.
The ‘National’ aim is to prevent children in our communities, from becoming drawn into radical, extremist or terrorist activity
“What are you doing to increase your staff’s awareness of the threats of extremism and terrorist activity in your area of responsibility?”
This workshop is fully facilitated by an experienced former Counter Terrorism officer and includes an interactive relevant case study
Bonus Afternoon Session:
Extremism, Radicalisation and Terrorism awareness training for young learners
The Citizen project is an exciting interactive engagement product, specifically designed for children and young adults. The aims of this project are to increase awareness, to educate and to challenge young people, in relation to their understanding of the dangers of potential extremist and terrorist activity in their community. This project also aims to support the concept of safeguarding vulnerable young people.
Citizen has been designed to engage young people around the Prevent strategy, namely;
“To stop people becoming terrorists or supporting terrorism”.
The input consists of learners following a cyber-journey taken by Cody, and their brother Michael, as they travel through the area that they live in, called “Theirtown”.
Along the way, participants will watch them as they become involved in real life situations, and will discuss their actions, reactions and possible outcomes of their behaviour.
