Workshop to Raise Awareness of PREVENT Briefing

In your professional capacity, you may encounter young people who are vulnerable, at risk or in the process of being radicalised.  You may be able to identify changes in a child which when shared with other agencies, could indicate an issue that needs to be addressed.

Any individual of concern may be referred to a multiagency panel known as Channel.  Channel is about safeguarding children and adults from being drawn into committing terrorist-related activity. It is about early intervention to protect and divert people away from the risk they face before illegality occurs.

In light of the new Counter Terrorism and Security Act, the Home Office have created a product called Workshop to Raise Awareness of Prevent (WRAP).

This comprises of a session lasting approximately 2 hours, which includes a DVD case study of a true account and a small amount of audience participation.  This input will cover the points explained as above and is aimed at ensuring Ofsted requirements for Prevent training to staff is completed.
