Counter-terrorism strategy (CONTEST) 2023

The aim of CONTEST is to reduce the risk from terrorism to the UK, its citizens and interests overseas, so people can live freely and with confidence.



PREVENT Training and Resources

Organisations should make sure that staff have training that gives them the knowledge and confidence to identify individuals at risk of being drawn into radicalisation, and to challenge extremist ideas which can be used to legitimise terrorism and are shared by terrorist groups. They should know where and how to refer those vulnerable to extremism for further help. Prevent awareness training will be a key part of this.

Several national resources are available:

Channel eLearning

The National Counter Terrorism Policing Headquarters (NCTPHQ), in conjunction with the College of Policing, has developed a general awareness e-learning package for Channel. The package includes information on how Channel links to the Government’s Counter-Terrorism Strategy (CONTEST) through the Prevent strategy, guidance on how to identify people who may be vulnerable to being drawn into terrorism, and how to refer them into the Channel process.

Case studies are included to increase understanding of Channel, which consist of identifying and referring vulnerable individuals to the process. Additionally, information is provided on how to identify appropriate support for the individual concerned.

PREVENT Training

The Channel General Awareness e-learning is no longer available. It has been replaced by Home Office Prevent eLearning, that can be undertaken to raise awareness about spotting the signs and making a referral to Channel. Three packages are currently available:

Prevent Awareness

This offers an introduction to the Prevent duty and explains how it aims to safeguard vulnerable people from being radicalised to supporting terrorism or becoming terrorists themselves.

Prevent Referrals

This package builds on the Prevent awareness eLearning training. It is designed to make sure that when we share a concern that a vulnerable individual may be being radicalised, that the referral is robust, informed and with good intention, and that the response to that concern is considered, and proportionate.

Channel Awareness

This training package is for anyone who may be asked to contribute to, sit on, or even run a Channel Panel. It is aimed at all levels, from a professional asked to input and attend for the first time, to a member of staff new to their role and organising a panel meeting.

Once you have completed the courses you will be able to access certificates for proof of completion
