Prevent eLearning

This Prevent eLearning course provides a brief overview of the Prevent Duty, including how to spot the signs that someone may be being radicalised and how to share your concerns.

It is aimed primarily at non-frontline staff in Derbyshire, but can be accessed by frontline staff who find it difficult to access Prevent (Counter Terrorism) webinars or WRAP classroom training, from the following organisations:

  • Derbyshire County Council
  • district and borough councils
  • elected members
  • early years providers, including nurseries and childminders
  • schools - suitable for general teaching staff, support staff and governors, who may prefer to access the pre-recorded Prevent (Counter Terrorism) webinar as an alternative. Heads, deputy heads, DSLs and key pastoral staff may find it more useful to attend a live Prevent (Counter Terrorism) webinar or WRAP classroom training (when available). 
  • further and higher education establishments
  • pupil referral units
  • police
  • prisons
  • probation services
  • youth offending services
  • health
  • social care

The eLearning course accessed via Derbyshire Learning Online (Learning Pool).
