What’s it all about?

This course will equip you with a detailed understanding of how to recognise and prevent radicalisation and extremism, the principles of safeguarding, the Prevent duty and its importance in society, and the importance of online safety and British Values.

In 2017, there were 412 arrests for terrorism-related offences. With issues of human rights, hate crime and democracy becoming ever more prevalent in the UK and the world, 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.

No previous knowledge and experience are required; however, minimum level 1 English skills would be beneficial for completion of assessments.

Studying via distance learning means you can choose when and where you study. We ensure you get all the support you need throughout your course in the form of a personal tutor. All of our award-winning learning resources are of the highest quality and are designed to be engaging and interactive to keep you focused on your learning at all times.

This is a 16 week, distance learning course. You will be required to work independently, in your own time, to complete the assessments with support from the online resources and individual tutor support provided. Assessment submission dates are evenly scheduled throughout the 16 weeks. You are advised to allocate dedicated time each week for completion of the course.
