Face-to-face training, so that everyone is aware of and understands the Prevent Duty and how it sits within national and Somerset’s safeguarding processes.
It is recommended that all front-line staff receive workshop to raise awareness of prevent (WRAP). To arrange training, please contact the Local Authority Prevent lead through email@example.com
Each of these training sessions begins with the standard WRAP course with an additional bolt on for those wishing to train as trainers at the end (this is recommended for designated safeguarding leads or those with a responsibility for cascading to colleagues at their establishment).
Many of our partner agencies offer multi-agency training opportunities on a variety of specialist themes. We will update this section as and when training becomes available. Please contact the training provider direct for further course information and attendance.
