    I personally felt empowered to fully embrace the British way of life....being American, it was good to get a refresher on the ways that Britain celebrates multi-culturalism and how to stop bad, bad, bad people. :eek:

    Mine was covered in the diversity training, oh the irony! It consisted of, "The government want everyone in a public service to undergo prevent training so you can spot someone being radicalised or a suspected terrorist. (cue lots of laughter) Yeah I know but if you suspect anything ring me. Right that's that covered lets move on."

    Where I am in FE the fashion amongst young men is for beards of the "full terrorist" type. Should I rugny tackle them and pin them to the ground while shouting for the police? Some of the ones with dark hair look really shifty, and being on Merseyside they also have a poor grasp of English and a dodgy accent. I think we need a SWAT team.

    It is dire. I completed it in a matter of minutes.......with suitable breaks to check emails between each module. Apparently if you rattle through it too quickly the system detects you haven't read it and slaps your wrist!
    What a joke!

    It is very important that an hour of your time be wasted with powerpoints and waffle so the government can say 'look we did stuff, we trained teachers, grrr all their fault ISIS exists!'

    I am reliably informed¹ that the training is informative, well structured and provides all the required information for staff to safeguard children in a teaching environment.......

    ¹From the blurb on a specialist training agency site
    They probably should have added expensive too

    Are you sure you all did the right training?:rolleyes: :D
