Prevent Duty and Prevent Referrals (Home Office)

This FREE e-learning has been developed by HM Government. It offers an introduction to the Prevent Duty and explains how it aims to safeguard vulnerable people from being radicalised to supporting terrorism or becoming terrorists themselves.


This FREE e-learning training is designed to make sure that when we share a concern that a vulnerable individual may be being radicalised, that referral is robust, informed and with good intention, and that the response to that concern is considered and proportionate.
