What is PREVENT and how can Tablet Academy help?


Together with our partner S.T.A.R Consultancy & Training Ltd, Tablet Academy is proud to offer a number of face to face workshops aimed at supporting schools and other organisations who come into contact with young people understand and implement a PREVENT strategy in line with their respective safeguarding policies .

PREVENT is part of the Government counter-terrorism strategy and is aimed at assisting those who work, support and have a responsibility for young people. It aims to prevent people from being drawn into terrorism by working with a wide range of stakeholders in order to address the risks of radicalisation as well as responding to the ideological challenge of terrorism and the threat we face from those who promote it.

Our workshops are run by experienced professionals who have a wealth of knowledge and experience in the counter-terrorism and the PREVENT agenda. The workshops range from simple 2Hr introductory sessions to a full-day Master Class.
