PREVENT TRAINING ONLINE
All education providers have a duty to safeguard their students, Prevent is about safeguarding students to keep
them both safe and within the law. The Prevent Duty is not about preventing students from having political and
religious views and concerns but about supporting them to use those concerns or act on them in non-extremist ways.
The Home Office offer a free and certified online learning package which can be viewed by clicking below.

PREVENT TRAINING COURSES
Class room based courses are also available via the CMAA should they be required.

LOCAL AUTHORITY DESIGNATED OFFICER (LADO)
A Local Authority Designated Officer (LADO) works within each Local Authority area and is there to support staff
across all organisations who work with children and young people if any concerns arise regarding any practitioner
who works with children and young people.

The LADO should be alerted to all cases in which it is alleged that a person who works with children has:
1. Behaved in a way that has harmed a child either physically or emotionally
2. May have harmed a child either physically or emotionall
3. Possibly committed a criminal offence against a child/children

If a person has concerns regarding the conduct of another then they should in the first instance report this to the
Designated Safeguarding Lead within their own organisation, who is required by law to report this concern to the
LADO.  However, it is important to note that anyone can contact the LADO if they need to do so for advice or support.
