Radicalisation and Extremism

Course Outline

Young people in Britain have become more and more at risk of Radicalisation & extremism and those working in this sector need to be aware of the factors that make young people more vulnerable to radicalisation, both within the family and externally. In order for schools and childcare providers to fulfil the Prevent duty, its is essential that staff are able to identify children who may be vulnerable to radicalisation, and know what to do when they are identified.
