Other Relevant Information

Channel Awareness Training - Online Package

The e-learning includes information on how Channel links to the government's counter-terrorism strategy (CONTEST) through the Prevent strategy. It also provides guidance on how to identify people who may be vulnerable to radicalisation and how to refer them into the Channel programme.

There are case studies to help users understand the process of identifying and referring vulnerable individuals, in addition to providing them with support, and is a good way of providing staff with a fundamental understanding of Channel. Users who successfully complete the eLearning (which takes approx. 25 minutes) can print off a certificate, which is a good way for managers to audit whether their staff have actually completed the training.
