Where: 
BVSC, 138 Digbeth, B5 6DR
An introduction to Prevent and covers issues such as crime, normal social processes that are used to influence and manipulate, extreme right-wing and Al Qa’ida case studies, terrorist ideologies and factors which may contribute to an individual’s susceptibility to a terrorist ideology.

Purpose

The successful delivery of Prevent is dependent on the engagement of national, regional and local partners across multiple sectors.  Public sector frontline staff have been identified as a key group that can make an important contribution to the identification and referral of individuals who may be vulnerable to radicalisation. This has created a significant training need as awareness and understanding of the Prevent agenda amongst many frontline staff is minimal or non-existent.

What is being done?

OSCT Prevent have updated the Workshop to Raise Awareness of Prevent (WRAP) which is a hour and a half interactive facilitated workshop centred around a DVD. It is aimed at frontline staff (such as police, social services, probation, education and health staff) and is intended to give them:

  • an awareness and understanding of the Prevent agenda and their role within it;
  • the ability to use existing expertise and professional judgement to recognise potentially vulnerable individuals who may be susceptible to messages of violence.
  • The confidence to use a common sense based  response

The workshop is an introduction to Prevent and covers issues such as crime, normal social processes that are used to influence and manipulate, extreme right-wing  and Al Qa’ida case studies, terrorist ideologies and factors which may contribute to an individual’s susceptibility to a terrorist ideology.
