TDLC Prevent Duty Policy

TDLC Prevent Duty Policy

From Wednesday 1 July 2015, all schools and training providers must have due

regard to the need to prevent learners and vulnerable adults being drawn into


The government has defined extremism in the Prevent strategy as: “vocal or active

opposition to fundamental British Values, including democracy, the rule of law,

individual liberty and mutual respect and tolerance of different faiths and beliefs."

Training and skills providers have a critical part to play. Training providers can serve

arguably some of the most vulnerable members of society.

TDLC is subject to the Prevent Duty and as expected will demonstrate activity in the

following areas:

 Assessing the risk of learners being drawn into terrorism.

 Demonstrate that they are protecting learners and vulnerable adults from being

drawn into terrorism by having robust safeguarding policies.

 Ensure that their safeguarding arrangements take into account the policies and

procedures of the Local Safeguarding Board.

 Make sure that staff have training that gives them the knowledge and confidence to

identify learners at risk of being drawn into terrorism, and to challenge extremist

ideas which can be used to legitimize terrorism.

 Expected to ensure learners are safe from terrorist and extremist material when

accessing the internet.
