The Prevent Duty

This course provides an insight into the Prevent Duty, covering the essential facts to help you understand what the Prevent Duty is and what you need to do to comply. EduCare ensures that all of their training courses are written and endorsed by experts. This course meets national Police approved standards and is accredited by Secured by Design, a national police initiative designed to prevent crime.

Dr Michelle Groves, RAD’s Lead Prevent Officer, explains the importance of this course: “As educators, dance teachers need to be aware of their responsibilities in terms of Prevent. While we may not think that issues of extremism and radicalisation will be brought into dance studios, the young people we teach engage in a complex and often difficult to understand world. As with any safeguarding issue, dance teachers need to be alert to changes in student behaviour which may be a result of inappropriate and sometimes criminal influences. As dance teachers, we are well positioned to support our students in understanding concerns as well as directing them to appropriate support services.”

This online activity is worth 1 hour Time-Valued CPD and can be completed in your own time.
