Prevent Module 1 - An Introduction to the Prevent Duty: Online Course

Self-taught course


The University has a statutory duty to have ‘due regard to prevent people from being drawn into terrorism’. This is known as the Prevent Duty (Section 26 of the Counter-Terrorism and Security Act 2015). It is primarily about safeguarding students and staff in the University and includes a range of responsibilities in areas such as pastoral care, support for staff and students, procedures for arranging events and using facilities. All staff need to be aware of the process of radicalisation, definitions of extremism and the process for raising concerns in this context.

This online module (approx. 45 minutes) provides information about Prevent for all staff working in the University. It is to be used alongside the guidance information, including how to raise a concern in this context, on the University Prevent website.

To access this online module and see details of all available training and support, visit the Prevent Training Moodle site using your Raven login. Before starting the Prevent online modules you must update your Moodle profile to include your College and University institution. For guidance on how to do this see the Moodle help page.
