Being a member of a team can provide us with incredibly rewarding opportunities for personal and professional growth, but it is not always easy. Differences in personality types, motivations and personal standards, along with a myriad of other hard to pinpoint factors, can all contribute to making the act of contributing to a team effort just that little bit harder than it should be.

With exam season now almost over, people around the world have seized the opportunity to better their academic qualifications and to enhance their career prospects. For many, these are pivotal moments following the years of sweat, possibly tears, but hopefully no blood, that they have shed in the build up to the moment that they walk into the examination room.
As part of our commitment to supporting the work of safeguarding professionals throughout the UK, we are delighted to announce that we will provide our accredited online Prevent Duty Awareness Training course for just £1.00 per person* to volunteers throughout National Volunteers' Week 2016 (01 - 12 June 2016).
“It couldn’t happen here.” The disconnect in thinking that hinders efforts to counter violent extremism, prevent radicalisation and stop terrorist attacks.
Terrorism and violent extremism are by their very nature unpredictable. Attacks can occur anywhere and the attackers can be almost anyone. Given that the UK is currently at our second highest terrorist attack alert state – severe, why do so many people assume that they do not need to prepare for the possibility that they might one day be affected by violent extremism or radicalisation?
There are a number of things that individuals and organisations need to know in order to properly address the requirements of the Prevent Duty, and so we have put together a one-page guide explaining what you need to know about Prevent Duty training and how this can help you comply with the duty and improve your resilience to radicalisation
Safeguarding is not an exact science. In order for front-line professionals to be able to identify and respond to the dangers that affect the people around them, they must be well informed on the latest developments in a wide range of subjects. In coming together with colleagues and sharing best practice in an open and supportive environment, we can benefit from shared wisdom, alternative points of view and extending our professional network.
A key part of implementing the Prevent Duty in schools is taking a risk-based approach to the requirement to ‘prevent people from being drawn into terrorism.’ For many schools, assessing the level of risk that they face is a difficult point to start from – particularly given that most school staff have a limited understanding of current developments in the field of counter violent extremism.
