Expanding on what you learnt in the introduction module, this advanced module offers healthcare professionals an in-depth exploration of radicalisation dynamics and counter-terrorism strategies.

Throughout the course, you'll explore the complexities of radicalisation processes and examine preventive measures, including a detailed look at the government's 'Prevent' strategy, as well as interventions such as referrals and the role of Channel. By the end, you'll have gained advanced knowledge and practical skills to effectively reduce the risks of terrorism in your communities.​

Statutory & Mandatory Training: Preventing Radicalisation Awareness Features

Our new Preventing Radicalisation Awareness course has been designed to work on all devices including mobiles, laptops, tablets and desktops giving you the flexibility to complete the training at a time and in a location suitable for you.

With healthcare staff often expected to complete training on an annual basis there will be topics you will be more familiar with than others. Our self assessment tool, which is at the start of each course, will allow you to test your knowledge to see if you would like to complete the training or progress straight to the end of course test.

At the end of this preventing radicalisation training course, you will need to complete a test that consists of multiple choice questions. Learners are required to achieve an 80% pass mark, and - if necessary - may attempt the test six times at no extra cost. If learners do not achieve the pass mark, further attempts may be given by contacting our support team.

The online preventing radicalisation course is fully interactive and is packed with various multimedia forms including video, animation and custom graphics to give you the best learning experience.

Each element of the training is WCAG 2.2 accessible and includes scenarios, contextualised activities, reflective activities, knowledge checks, bite sized lessons and so much more.
