In partnership with a highly respected Prevent practitioner and subject matter expert, Gooseberry Planet have developed a comprehensive, accessible CPD that covers all aspects of the Prevent Duty that affect education. It is also the most up-to-date training available, incorporating the recently released CONTEST Strategy 2018 (which includes significant changes to Prevent) as well as the latest Home Office Channel referral figures which highlight the essential role that education plays in safeguarding young people through Prevent.

The CPD is divided into 7 sections, each one with a short assessment at the end to check understanding. Case studies involving different types of extremism (based on real-life Prevent referrals) are incorporated throughout the module to reinforce the learning and bring the CPD to life.
