In 2014, it became a requirement for every education provider and certain authorities to promote British Values. Promoting British Values enables individuals to prevent Radicalisation and Extremism. In 2017, there were 412 arrests for terrorism-related offences, therefore, it is more important than ever to be informed on the measures that can be taken to help prevent terrorism and promote Safeguarding and British Values in society.

This course is ideal for you if you wish to increase your awareness and understanding of the issues surrounding Prevent, including radicalisation, extremism, propaganda, social media, and the promotion of British Values, such as democracy and the rule of law. You will also learn more about safeguarding and the legislation relating to it.

A requirement for the course is that you have a minimum of Level 1 in English and Mathematics or be prepared to sit an English and Mathematics assessment to establish your current levels. Please discuss any queries regarding your English and Mathematics with us because all applications will be considered on an individual basis.

Unit 1: Understanding the Prevent Duty

Unit 2: Understanding Safeguarding

Unit 3: Online Safety

All learning will take place using an interactive distance learning platform and an HSDC assessor will be on hand for any queries and will mark your assessments and provide you with feedback.

You will be assessed through online assessment.

On completion of this course, you will be workplace ready or have enhanced your existing work skills.

The teaching and support was absolutely brilliant, they couldn’t have done anything more or anything better, if I had any questions my lecturers would always stay behind to help me if I needed it and their emails were always open, it was second to none. This college is the best by far.
