The Role of Further Education Colleges in Preventing Violent Extremism: Next Steps

This report describes how we will take forward support for Further Education colleges in preventing violent extremism, following our recent consultation. These areas are complex and challenging and we do not propose to develop and issue a final set of guidance but seek to identify the support that colleges need and encourage a sector-led response to the challenge. In the consultation, colleges accepted the particular need to focus on Al-Qaida related activity but also stressed the importance of adopting approaches that will also enable them to counter incidences of extremism from other groups – most notably the far right. We believe the five objectives described in the consultation document provide a useful framework for colleges and other providers to use across a wide range of local contexts and settings. In doing this it will be particularly important that colleges’ work is co-ordinated alongside that of local partners also working on Preventing Violent Extremism.
