Ofsted publishes Prevent duty report

14th December 2017

Ofsted has published the report, How well are further education and skills providers implementing the ‘Prevent’ duty?. In response, David Corke, Director of Education and Skills Policy at the Association of Colleges (AoC), said: “The safeguarding of students is of paramount importance for further education and sixth form colleges. In these challenging times, the Prevent duty remains at top of their agenda and many see the duty as an extension of their safeguarding responsibility. “Colleges have been working incredibly hard to implement the duty and they will continue to do so. Ofsted’s report rightly identifies the good progress being made in colleges and commends the quality of staff training. “AoC will continue to provide advice and support to colleges on this provision and we would urge local authorities to ensure that multi-agency arrangements are effective and work closely with their colleges.”
