Training and Education
As with other forms of grooming and exploitation, Prevent awareness training is essential in early identification and intervention. Prevent awareness training is open to all professionals who come into contact with the public, enabling them to understand and recognise signs of radicalisation and extremism as part of their safeguarding responsibilities.
Which Courses do we Offer?
Our main course is the Workshop to Raise Awareness of Prevent (WRAP) - an introductory one and a half hour interactive session, developed by the Home Office, which aims to help frontline staff identify people who may be vulnerable and at risk of becoming involved in violent extremism, and provides advice on how to respond appropriately. WRAP training is delivered free of charge to local statutory agencies and voluntary sector organisations.
To arrange WRAP training for local Educational Institutions, please visit the Traded Services Prevent web page and register your interest. Alternatively, for voluntary sector groups working with young people or adults, you should contact the organisations below:
- Voluntary Sector Groups or Organisations Working with Children and Young People - LSCB
- Voluntary Sector Groups or Organisations Working Adults - Safeguarding Adults Board
We work with our local schools and education providers to provide them with the tools to enable open discussion with students around issues of extremism and community cohesion. Please visit the Traded Services web pages to access available resources for schools.
