Radicalisation and Extremism Awareness Workshops

Book the Radicalisation and Extremism Awareness Workshops.

With each workshop booking you get a complimentary lesson plan to help follow-up the work.

Our creative and interactive workshops do not preach or condescend; they highlight the dangers and tell it how it is.

The Counter Terrorism and Security Act 2015 includes provisions which place a
“duty on specified bodies, including the Police, Prisons, Local Authorities, Schools and Universities, to have due regard to preventing people being drawn into terrorism”.
- Theresa May Feb 2015.
All Safeguarding and support organisations and authorities are subject to this duty, need to ensure they provide appropriate training for staff involved in the implementation of this responsibility. Staff that engage with children must understand what radicalisation means and how young people may become vulnerable to being drawn into extremist and/or terrorist activity. Similarly, all staff need to be aware and understand the relationship between radicalisation and terrorism and how to recognise, react to and refer or report potentially harmful activity. The ‘National’ aim is to prevent children in our communities, from becoming drawn into radical, extremist or terrorist activity.

The Actionwork® workshops have been designed to engage young people around the Prevent strategy, namely; “To stop people becoming terrorists or supporting terrorism”. Through short scenes some participants will watch characters as they become involved in real life situations, and will discuss their actions, reactions and possible outcomes of their behaviour. The exercise will enable young learners to explore, reflect and challenge some of the behaviour that the pair demonstrates and to discuss potential solutions as to the difficult situations that they find themselves in. The workshops aim to educate young learners and offer solutions that will empower them to build a personal resilience against those involved in extremist and terrorist activity.

The workshops last for 60-90 minutes and can be deliverd to a whole year group at a time.
