Respect

The importance of tolerance and respect for diversity and equal opportunity are promoted through the Colleges as part of the safe and respectful culture and the ongoing Respect Campaign.

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

Reducing online sexual harm

The Marie Collins Foundation is a charity working directly with children, young people and families to enable their recovery following sexual abuse involving technology. Working with the NWG Exploitation Network, they have created this resource to produce help guides, for parents and professionals, aimed at reducing online sexual harm.
