Counter terrorism training

Prevent is one strand of the government counter-terrorism strategy CONTEST which aims to identify people at risk of radicalisation or supporting terrorism.

For more information on Prevent and reporting activity or concerning behaviour please see counter terrorism.

Prevent is a statutory duty under Section 26 of the Counter Terrorism and Security Act 2015 for many agencies. This means that we must have "due regard to the need to prevent people being drawn into terrorism" in our day to day work. All front line staff from specified agencies need to have an awareness of Prevent to comply with this legislation.

Courses available

There are several courses available to help develop your understanding of the Prevent Duty. A brief outline is included on this page. Visit each course page for more information.

Prevent (Counter Terrorism) Webinar

This free 1.5 hour webinar takes key elements from the Workshop To Raise Awareness of Prevent (WRAP) Training.  It is designed for Derbyshire practitioners, who work in communities or work with vulnerable individuals, and have little or no knowledge about Prevent. A pre-recorded webinar is also available. Read more about Prevent webinars and who this course is aimed at.

Prevent (Counter Terrorism) eLearning

This eLearning course covers the Prevent Duty, spotting the signs of someone who may be being radicalised and how to share concerns. It is aimed primarily at non-frontline staff, but can be accessed by frontline staff who find it difficult to access Prevent (Counter Terrorism) webinars or WRAP classroom training.
