Radicalisation of Young People
The Radicalisation of Young People is an issue taken up with the UK Government from 2015, when it produced ‘Guidance for specified authorities in England and Wales on the duty in the Counter-Terrorism and Security Act 2015 to have due regard to the need to prevent people from being drawn into terrorism’.
Radicalisation of Young People is a mandatory training requirement for all those working with under 18’s and fits in with Safeguarding responsibilities.
It is important to understand what the process of radicalisation actually looks like for families, friends and communities to spot the warning signs and help prevent acts of violent extremism. This course aims to give an understanding of what causes people to be vulnerable to radicalisation or influenced by extremism. It includes insights on how to recognise those that are potentially vulnerable to radicalisation and information on what to do if there are concerns about an individual.
