Prevent duty training: Learn how to support people vulnerable to radicalisation

This training service is for people working in sectors covered by the Prevent duty, such as education, health, local authorities, police, prisons, probation and youth justice. Other sectors that are not covered may also complete this training.

Prevent is one part of the government’s overall counter-terrorism strategy, CONTEST. The aim of Prevent is to:

  • tackle the causes of radicalisation
  • respond to the challenges that terrorist ideology may present
  • safeguard and support those most at risk of radicalisation through early intervention
  • support those who have already engaged in terrorism to disengage and rehabilitate

In these training courses, you will learn about:

  • the Prevent duty
  • different forms of extremism and terrorism
  • the risk around radicalisation and your supportive role
  • making a Prevent referral that is both informed and made with good intention
  • the interventions and support available

If you experience any issues with the service or our site, please refer to our help section. A link can be found at the footer of every page.

This service is also available in Welsh (Cymraeg)
