The recent rise in terrorist attacks and extremist activities has become a source of growing concern in Britain. Even more alarming is the threat of radicalisation of youth by Islamic terrorist groups.
The Department for Education strongly suggests instilling British values from the early years as a means of counteracting the risks of radicalisation.
What You Will Learn:
- The importance of British values and why they are a powerful tool to combat the risk of radicalisation

- How schools can promote these values in practical, effective ways
The Benefits of Taking This Course:
This course can particularly benefit teachers and school staff who interact with children on a daily basis.
