Prevent

Prevent is a legal duty placed on the College to protect vulnerable individuals from being drawn into extremism and radicalisation. The young people being radicalised are often students in FE/HE environments.

What does Radicalisation and Extremism mean?

  • Radicalisation is the process through which an individual changes to become more militant or extremist with an intent to become involved with or support violence
  • Extremism is when an individual or group holds extreme political or religious views

 

If you have any oncerns about yourself, your friends or other students in terms of extremism or radicalisation, please report this through your tutor or directly to the safeguarding team who are available 8.30am-5pm weekdays (term time only) or email safe@wiltshire.ac.uk

The College is committed to making staff and students aware of the reporting procedure.
