Prevent is one of the elements of the government's counter terrorism strategy.
We have a duty to help protect learners from being radicalised. Radicalisation is the process through which a person comes to support or be involved in extremist ideologies. It can result in a person becoming drawn into terrorism and is in itself a form of harm.
If you are worried about someone showing signs of being radicalised or if you hear something that could be terrorist related report it:
- to your tutor or other staff member
- to the Adult Learning Service's designated Safeguarding Officer, Helen Doel or the Deputy Safeguarding Officers, Tania Sowerby and Teresa Humpage on 01604 367119
