Further Education Colleges and Independent Learning Providers (ILPs) contracted to the SFA are required to comply with new statutory duties on preventing extremism. Providers are now expected to demonstrate compliance with the Prevent Duty, which aims to stop people becoming terrorists or supporting terrorism.

Compliance with the Prevent Duty has become a component of Ofsted’s inspection criteria, and is specifically referenced in the Ofsted handbook. This includes a requirement for providers to demonstrate the promotion of British Values with learners and apprentices.
