On Friday 9 Oct, we’re hosting a webinar with the Department for Education, exploring the impact of lockdown on Prevent and wider safeguarding referrals, and how providers can respond.
The COVID-19 health crisis has had a major impact on every aspect of our lives and communities – Prevent and safeguarding are no different. With increased online activity by extremist and terrorist groups – at a time when many learners are isolated and spending increasing periods of time online, without the usual safeguarding oversight and interventions – presents obvious concerns. Prevent referrals have fallen during the period of lockdown leaving an uncertain picture what this will mean in the post-lockdown phase and what hidden risks await us.
How can you, as a provider, uncover the extent of hidden vulnerabilities and risks, and how might you manage them?
Here’s what we’ll cover:
- The impact of the COVID-19 crisis, including key social events and public reactions
- How Prevent and safeguarding matters have been affected during the COVID-19 crisis
- Current terrorist threat levels and the responsibilities of FE funded providers
- What a post COVID-19 response from providers might include
- Signposts to resources to support a post COVID-19 engagement plan
This webinar takes place on Friday, 9 October 2020 at 09.30-10.30am.
You can book onto the webinar for £55 (+VAT). If you have several staff who would benefit, let us know and we’ll send you details of the most cost effective way of accessing the webinar.
