Prevent duty


We are committed to safeguarding the welfare of our students, apprentices and staff and to meeting our duties under the Counter-Terrorism and Security Act 2015 and the UK Government's associated Prevent strategy.

Section 26 of the Counter-Terrorism and Security Act 2015 places a legal duty on “specified authorities”, which includes universities, to have “due regard to the need to prevent people from being drawn into terrorism”. For guidance, please see statutory guidance: revised Prevent duty guidance: for England and Wales.

Safeguarding is everyone's responsibility

If you have a concern, pass it on. Contact our Safeguarding Leads.

What to do if you are concerned

You might notice a change in a person's behaviour that is cause for concern. You may think they are at potential risk of exploitation by radicalisers. Regardless of who you are, you must share these concerns with a Safeguarding Lead.
