The Prevent Agenda

2016 - 2017: What's next


The Higher Education Funding Council for England (HEFCE), who are responsible for monitoring whether relevant higher education bodies (RHEBs) are demonstrating due regard to the Prevent duty, have just released an updated monitoring framework (September 2016) setting out how they will monitor implementation of the duty.

The Leadership Foundation, commissioned by HEFCE, will continue to focus on supporting RHEBs in their implementation of the Prevent duty through a number of initiatives detailed below. 

Comprehensive evaluation of the Prevent training materials
Last year, the Leadership Foundation were commissioned by HEFCE to produce a set of Prevent training materials to support institutions in implementing the Prevent duty under the Counter-Terrorism and Security Act 2015. We have worked closely with UUK and BIS to produce these materials which are now published free of charge via the Safe Campus Communities website. We will now be undertaking a comprehensive evaluation of the Prevent training materials to include the identification of good practice and of any further changes or additions needed. This will report to HEFCE and the sector in December 16' and March 17'. If you would like to participate, please let us know by contacting programmes@Advance-HE.ac.uk.

Background

The Higher Education Funding Council for England (Hefce) commissioned the Leadership Foundation to support the sector in implementing the Prevent duty under the Counter Terrorism and Security Act, 2015.

The Counter-Terrorism and Security Act 2015 places a new statutory duty on a range of higher education providers to have “due regard to the need to prevent people from being drawn into terrorism”. This has become known as the ‘Prevent duty’ and came into force on 18 September 2015 for a range of higher education providers including alternative providers. The Act requires providers to have regard to the statutory Guidance issued by the Government about how they should exercise their ‘Prevent’ duty. We are working in collaboration with Hefce, Universities UK, Council of University Chairs (CUC), Association of Heads of University Associations (AHUA), the Equality Challenge Unit (ECU) and others, to ensure that leaders can explore and understand the leadership challenges facing their institutions in meeting their responsibilities effectively.

The Leadership Foundation produced a set of Prevent training materials to support the institutions in implementing the Prevent duty and have worked closely with UUK and BIS to produce these materials which are now published and can be downloaded free of charge via the Safe Campus Communities website.

The training materials are presented in a modular format, some of which are generic and suitable for use by all staff, and some of which are more targeted and aimed at specific roles within institutions. These incorporate powerpoint presentations and corresponding training notes. Topics covered include an introduction to the Prevent duty, implications for governing bodies and senior leadership teams, the Prevent duty in context of other legislation and legal duties, academic freedom and freedom of speech, safeguarding pastoral care and student support, and risk assessment and action planning.
