ABOUT THE TRAINING

RESPONDING TO HATE AND EXTREMISM

There is growing evidence to show that levels of hate and extremism are rising across the UK and beyond, causing devastation to victims and their families and spreading mistrust within communities. Within a climate of heightened tensions and widening divisions, it is imperative that organisations across different sectors deliver effective, evidence-based responses to victims, perpetrators and wider communities.

The Centre for Hate Studies has developed this series of digital training modules to support better understanding and responses to hate and extremism. Hosted on an interactive digital platform, training is designed to support a range of practitioners at all levels.

Registering for an account will provide you with free access to the suite of modules. For a small fee (£15 per module), you can purchase a certificate of completion from the Centre for Hate Studies which is endorsed by the University of Leicester.

WHO IS THIS TRAINING FOR?

No previous knowledge of hate crime or extremism is required to complete the modules successfully. Those with intermediate or advanced levels of knowledge will further their understanding through accessing the wide-range of resources, interactive activities and case studies which are embedded throughout the modules.

Hate crime and extremism are significant social problems which present challenges for communities across the country and for professionals working within a range of sectors, including criminal justice, education, local government, health and social care. The training modules will be particularly beneficial for those who work within these sectors.

All individual digital training modules can be completed in one go, or can be undertaken in stages.
