The Prevent Duty and Safeguarding

All FE providers have a duty to safeguard their students, Prevent is about safeguarding our students to keep them both safe and within the law. The Prevent Duty is not about preventing students from having political and religious views and concerns but about supporting them to use those concerns or act on them in non-extremist ways. Providers from across the sector will find resources here to support them in adopting the Prevent Duty.
