Description

What is WRAP?

The Home Office have produced a DVD-based training package called WRAP – Workshop to Raise Awareness of Prevent. The workshop is for any staff, front line staff, managers and specialised employees who are based in any of the listed ‘specified authorities’:

  • Local authorities

  • Schools and Registered Childcare Providers (excluding higher and further education)

  • Further education

  • Higher education

  • The Health Sector

  • Prisons and probation (including under 18 environments)

  • The Police

What is the aim of WRAP?

WRAP is designed to help make them aware about their contribution in preventing vulnerable people being exploited for extremist or terrorist purposes. The workshop improves the understanding of the processes used by those who radicalise individuals and ensures that staff are aware of whom to contact within their organisation to discuss any concerns.

This workshop aims to give you:

  • An understanding of the Prevent agenda and your role within it.

  • The ability to use your existing expertise and professional judgement to recognise potentially vulnerable individuals and know when an intervention may be necessary to support them.

  • Knowledge of when, how and where to refer concerns about vulnerable individuals.

The training can be completed as the WRAP or it can also be the WRAP Train the Trainer course, which is emphasised for Safeguarding officers / Prevent Leads who will be able to cascade this training throughout their establishment, according to their setting specific training requirements.
