Safeguarding

Safeguarding has become a mainstream activity in many professions now, not just
within education. In Counter Terrorism, the PREVENT strand of the Government's
strategies seeks to identify young and/or vulnerable people who could be radicalised
or coerced into committing acts of Terrorism.

This technique can also be utilised to identify potential offending and anti-social
behaviour by young or vulnerable people within our communities. This is a
qualification that is transportable, meaning that it remains current and relevant, even
if the holder of the qualification moves jobs.
