Holding answer received on 03 February 2015

As the Minister for Security and Immigration, I have lead responsibility for overseeing the changes to the Prevent programme.

A training package to raise awareness of Prevent (WRAP) has been provided to public sector workers including teachers and headteachers and others in the community since 2007. Since the revised Prevent Strategy was launched in

2011, over 130,000 people have attended WRAP training sessions.

Training is delivered by accredited trainers from across the public sector including staff from within the education sector, Local Authorities, and the Police. WRAP is designed to help identify when people may be vulnerable to

radicalisation, how to raise concerns and what proportionate responses should be taken. This training package will support those carrying out their obligations under the Counter-Terrorism and Security Bill.
