The Prevent duty forms section 26 of the Counter-Terrorism and Security Act 2015 which placed a statutory duty on seven “specified authorities” to have: “due regard to prevent people from being drawn into terrorism”. 

The Prevent duty has three main objectives:
  • Respond to the ideological challenge of terrorism and the threat faced from those who promote it
  • Prevent people from being drawn into terrorism and give them advice and support
  • Work with sectors and institutions where there are risks of radicalisation
The Office for Students is the monitoring body for Prevent for HE providers. Additionally, the Office for Standards in Education, Children’s Services and Skills (Ofsted) is the monitoring body for Prevent for Kent’s Higher Apprenticeship provision.

To make a report against radicalisation or the Prevent duty under Report and Support, make a report under 'other' and specify 'radicalisation/ prevent'.
