The University has both a legal and moral obligation to staff and students to ensure that our place of work and study is an inclusive, tolerant, welcome and safe environment.

The 'Prevent' duty

We have a duty (Prevent) in helping to safeguard our students from becoming radicalised and drawn into extremism or terrorism.   This can apply to all forms of radicalisation and extremism including political and religious activities across a wide spectrum.  Our focus is on supporting individual students to prevent them from being drawn into terrorism and ensuring that we are able to provide the appropriate support and guidance.

ACT Awareness eLearning

Devised by CT officers and security experts, the ACT Awareness eLearning package was previously only available to staff working in crowded places like shopping centres and entertainment venues.

Now Counter Terrorism Policing has decided to open up the training to anyone who wants to become a CT Citizen so they can learn how to spot the signs of suspicious behaviour and understand what to do in the event of a major incident.

ACT Awareness eLearning will provide nationally recognised corporate CT guidance to help people better understand, and mitigate against, current terrorist methodology.

The following eLearning Modules are available:

  1. Introduction to Terrorism
  2. Identifying Security Vulnerabilities
  3. How to Identify and Respond to Suspicious Behaviour
  4. How to Identify and Deal with a Suspicious Item
  5. What to do in the Event of a Bomb Threat
  6. How to Respond to a Firearms or Weapons attack
  7. Summary and Supporting Materials

You will be provided with your own URL link and PIN to immediately access the online version after registration.
