Prevent is a vital component of the UK government's counter-terrorism strategy, aimed at safeguarding individuals from becoming involved in or supporting terrorism and radicalisation.
The Prevent programme focuses on early intervention and works to identify and address the root causes that may lead individuals towards extremist ideologies. It involves collaboration between various sectors, including education, healthcare, and law enforcement, to ensure a coordinated and proactive approach. Through Prevent, individuals are equipped with the knowledge and skills to challenge extremist narratives and foster a society that upholds British values of democracy, tolerance, and respect for all. By promoting awareness and engagement, Prevent aims to create a safer and more inclusive environment where every individual can thrive and contribute positively to society.
Prevent the attack
When we think about terrorism we often think of the attacks. The attack is the tip of the iceberg. We don’t tend to think of everything that has to happen beforehand or activity that is below the water line. What we mustn’t forget is that before an attack, there must have been a period of days, weeks, months or even years in advance of recruitment, fundraising and radicalisation. These are some of the hidden aspects of terrorism and they can happen anywhere.
We actively promote British values of democracy, tolerance, and respect for all individuals. Our Prevent programme is designed to identify and prevent any signs of radicalisation among our apprentices.
