Training for Prevent and Channel

1. Prevent and Channel training

We've developed 2 free Prevent and Channel courses:

  • an e-learning module
  • and a classroom based course if you have face to face contact with the public

The courses provide a basic introduction to Prevent and are intended to help you spot any signs that might indicate that the people you meet are at risk.

The courses contain sections on:

  • what Prevent is
  • who's vulnerable
  • what to look out for
  • notice, check and share
