Prevent Duty Training for Schools and Academies

Prevent Duty Training for Schools and Academies

Fully updated in line with the latest HM Government requirements in force from 31st December 2023.

Prevent is a key aspect of HM Government's anti-terrorism strategy which places statutory duties on key professions. As such, KCSIE continues to recognise Prevent as a key safeguarding topic for educational settings.

Fully updated in line with the latest HM Government requirements in force from 31st December 2023.

As you will be aware from our e-bulletin, substantive changes have been made by HM Government to the Prevent Duty and to the statutory requirements placed on school, academy and college settings.

To meet the new requirements, we have produced two new courses which will replace the current Prevent Duty course:

  1. Prevent Duty for SLT/DSLs/Governors
  2. Prevent Duty for Staff and Volunteers

Both courses are included in your licence. Users simply pick which version to access from the menu.

What is the difference between the 2 versions?

Both versions fully update on the latest Prevent Duty 31st December 2023. The SLT/DSLs/Governor version is more detailed and focuses on how to lead on Prevent Duty. The Staff/Volunteer member version defines their specific responsibilities under the duty according to their role.

What is covered in both courses?

Module 1
Introduction to Prevent Strategy
Module 2
Module 3
Prevent Referrals and Channel
Module 4
School Actions and Policy

Our training is applicable to the following educational settings: Primary Schools, Primary Academies, Secondary Schools, Secondary Academies, Public Schools, Free Schools, Pupil Referral Units, SEND Schools and other post 16 settings.

  • All new recruits in roles named above as part of the induction process

The Admin dashboard

Our system requires no complicated setup. From the Admin Dashboard simply copy and send an invitation email to your staff with the login details for your school or academy. Once your staff commence training, all progress, results and CPD certificates are presented in the Admin Dashboard as evidence of training.

The Training site

Staff complete a course via any PC, Mac, Smartphone or Tablet. Each course is made up of an engaging multimedia presentation created using 3D animation, comprehensive course notes and a fully tracked multiple-choice assessment. On completion, staff can view and print their CPD accredited certificate.

All courses are kept up-to-date with any changes in legislation or policy ensuring practice in your school or academy is compliant with current requirements.
