The government’s Prevent duty guidance requires universities to demonstrate that they are 'willing to undertake Prevent awareness training'; the guidance is not prescriptive about the format or content of the training and a broad interpretation, including general awareness-raising, briefings incorporated with other training etc is acceptable.

A number of such sessions have already taken place and the Steering Group is currently considering, in consultation with the Conference of Colleges, how to use existing channels to provide further sessions during Michaelmas term and beyond.

Both groups recognise the importance of raising awareness of Prevent in the context of other legal obligations, such as the Human Rights Act 1998, the Equality Act 2010, and the Education (No 2) Act 1986.
