As part of the Government’s Prevent strategy, all universities and colleges now have a legal duty to implement robust policies and procedures for countering the threat posed by radicalisation.

Our new Working with the Prevent Duty online training course has been designed to provide universities and colleges with a highly flexible and cost-effective means of providing essential Prevent Duty training to both staff and students. The course explores what the Prevent Duty means, and how it can be applied in an effective and sensitive way, in order to protect the vulnerable, without marginalising groups or suppressing important freedoms.

We decided to partner with Cylix to not only use their off-the-shelf online courses, but also to develop new online courses. We look forward to working with Cylix on future products and have no hesitation in recommending their engrossing and visually-pleasing gold-standard courses.
