We are trusted by the Government to work within this sensitive area and are funded to support practitioners, leaders, organisations and employers, as well as provide resources for learners.
The Education and Training Foundation (ETF) is running two forums and three webinars in February and March 2021 for those responsible for Safeguarding and Prevent in Further Education and Training Sector.
Forums will bring people together to:
Forum One was delivered on 4 February and focused on Resilience and Vulnerability.
Forum Two takes place on 10 March. The focus will be Digital Safety.
To get the most out of the event, we expect participants to join us for the day so they can fully participate in hearing speakers, topical debate and discussion.
We are offering a suite of seminars that add to and complement the issues and themes explored at the online Forums.
The dedicated Prevent for FE and training website provides a range of resources to support employer providers, ITPs, colleges and adult education in engaging with the Prevent duty and ensuring that they are ready for Ofsted inspections.
Over 200,000 people have enrolled on our Prevent Duty awareness raising modules. There are eight modules tailored to the needs of people across the FE sector including apprenticeship providers and employer providers.
We have developed our Side by Side modules which have already been used by over 100,000 learners to raise awareness of the dangers of radicalisation and extremism to learners.
We also deliver face-to-face open access and bespoke in-house training in Prevent duty, British values, Safeguarding and Equality and Diversity for all staff and organisations across the sector, including employer and apprenticeship providers, ITPs, adult education and colleges that require further support.
Take a look at Face-to-face training for providers.
