Animation explaining prevent duty - Prevent Duty Training
Section 1 - Recognise

This section takes a look at the first of the 4 R's of child protection - recognise. We highlight what terrorism and extremism are, why children and young people can be vulnerable to radicalisation, and we take a look at the warning signs that suggest radicalisation could be taking place.

Section 2 - Respond, Report, Record

Prevent Duty should be approached in a risk-based way. Your organisation will be aware of the risk of radicalisation in your workplace and this should be communicated to you. In this second and final section, we look at the other three Rs of child protection in relation to the Prevent Duty - respond, record and report.


In today's landscape, Prevent Duty is an essential training topic and is something that should be regularly reviewed at schools and other institutes of education. For those teaching children of a younger age, educating children on British values and their rights can help children to challenge and argue extremist views, assisting their personal, social and emotional development and understanding of the world.

Prevent Duty should not stop children from debating extremist views. It is just part of the wider safeguarding duties of those working within education and childcare to ensure that children are not subject to acts of extremism or radicalisation.

By protecting children from these threats, children could be protected from further harm associated with terrorism. for example, drugs, gangs, neglect and abuse. Ofstead common inspections framework makes reference to the need of safeguarding arrangements to prevent radicalisation and extremism. Different settings may result in different requirements. 

Statutory guidance on Prevent duty can be put into 4 sections: 

  • Risk assessments
  • Working in partnership
  • Staff training 
  • IT policies

This Prevent Training takes just 20 minutes to complete and you can trial it for free at any time.

Short, factual and engaging

I thought this was great training. I like that you can read it as the video plays in case you’re a visual learner. It covers the facts succinctly.

Easy to understand

The online training was very concise, at the end of each slide it bullet pointed all the key information for taking notes. You have to watch all the slides before completing the short test

probably good for full ti

Perhaps something more specific ,not too detailed would be beneficial to persons who are not full time employees It seems geared towards anyone in full/part time contact with young people. An invigilator for example might possibly identify something but in isolation might not register, I am in a fortunate position having been involved in the school environment for a lifetime and Im pleased that from experience I can still pick out what could be "problems" which are passed on to the relevant safeguarding persons.

Precise and relevant

A useful and relevant training course, no waffle

Very good and easy to follow format.

This user gave this course a rating of 5/5 stars

Good clear instruction and questions.

Very straightforward, easy to use and complete. Printing Certificates is better than waiting for them to arrive at a later date.

Slow boring equivocal inaccessible

Requires videos to be played rather than just reading the transcripts, Deliberately asks binary questions where both responses are correct which doesn’t make the responder feel particularly positive, lacks insight


very infomative

Why is this training important?


It's important that you comply with the law and know the ways in which it affects you and the way you work.

The relevant legislation to this course is the Counter-Terrorism and Security Act 2015. This legislation places a duty on certain bodies to have: 

“due regard to the need to prevent people from being drawn into terrorism”.

Section 26 - Counter-Terrorism and Security Act 2015

The people that have a duty to prevent this radicalisation and extremism being inflicted upon children are listed in Schedule 6 to the Act. 

The Prevent strategy, published in 2011, is part of a Counter-terrorism strategy. The aim of the prevent strategy aims to reduce the threat of terrorism on the UK, by preventing them from being drawn to it or being part of it. By targeting those who are still young and developing, we allow them to be educated and form their opinions about why terrorism is wrong. Thus aiming to reduce terrorism as a whole.
