Course description
The UK faces a continuing threat from international and domestic terrorism. The UK’s Counter Terrorism Strategy Contest sets out the steps that need to be taken to protect the public. Preventing violent extremism in the pathway to terrorism forms a vital part of that strategy.

PREVENT aims to stop people becoming terrorists or supporting terrorism.

Important note: It is essential that you have undertaken the Safeguarding Children e-learning prior to coming on this course (see additional information under full details), or you may be turned away.
Training objectives
All organisations working in partnership to support PREVENT should encourage their staff to be aware of risks of terrorism and be able to report them appropriately. They should be encouraged to consider the risks from terrorism and violent extremism as part of their regular responsibilities.

This course is aimed at all front line professionals, including Managers, from East Sussex County Council (ESCC) Children’s Services Social Care, Early Help, Children’s Services Education, Schools, Adult Services, Youth Offending Team (YOT). East Sussex Police, Health, Probation and the Voluntary and Independent sectors.
