Course Overview

Radicalisation is a complex, controversial and serious worldwide issue which is described by the UK Youth Offending Team as a process of ‘personal and political transformation’.

In recent years, advances in communication methods (including social media) and changing models of the radiation process and methods of acts of terrorism, mean that more people are vulnerable to the influences of radicalisation than ever before and it is essential for support teams to know what radicalisation is and to recognise and act on potential early indicators.

This training course confirms what radicalisation is and how vulnerable people are influenced using different factors and ideologies and describes the different theories and models of radicalisation.

This training course also confirms the meaning and purpose of the Prevent Duty and Channel Programme and clarifies the requirements which this places on support organisations in order to comply with the statutory requirements of the local authority. This is a Level 3 accredited course.
