The OfS and the Prevent Duty

Share this page

The Prevent Duty is the legislation ensuring that public bodies take necessary steps to reduce the risk of radicalisation and extremism. The Office for Students (OfS) monitors the implementation of this Duty throughout the sector. In order to be assured of compliance, the OfS employs a risk based approach, including higher engagement with those universities they judge be at a higher risk.

In this briefing note, we detail the OfS' approach, and its implications, as well as discussing some of the wider controversies surrounding the duty.
