We ran another free webinar with Beej Kaczmarczyk on Thurs 1st Sept that covered the recently released report, ‘How well are further education and skills providers implementing the ‘Prevent’ duty?’.
This report comments that a “number of providers, particularly independent learning providers, small providers and those working in isolation, are struggling to implement the duty”. All FE providers have a legal responsibility to safeguard learners from being drawn into terrorism. Ofsted inspectors fed back that “too many providers see the Prevent duty as little more than a ‘tick-box exercise’ and do not regard it as an important part of their responsibilities towards learners. In some instances, inspectors saw no effort by providers to implement the requirements of the duty, leaving learners at risk”.
The interactive workshop reviewed this feedback and provided practical tips and guidance on delivering against these objectives and gave examples of best practice from the sector. Bearing in mind that in 16/17 Ofsted have said they “will raise further its expectations on providers to implement all aspects of the Prevent duty and will continue to evaluate its impact on keeping learners safe” this makes it a ‘must-know’ topic for any FE provider so please click here to view our video or here to download the slides.
