We have added a Prevent Agenda Framework to Stedfast. This will allow colleges and providers to conduct a self assessment of their prevent duty guidance and identify actions that need to be implemented. This is a hugely useful tool for providers as it will ensure that they meet this important requirement that OfSTED is now inspecting on.

Prevent Duty Guidance for Further Education

We have used the Prevent Duty Guidance for Further Education which was published on the 12th March by the Home Office. It sets out expectations for Further Education organisations in their Prevent duty guidance.

The framework added to Stedfast covers:

  • Partnerships
  • Risk Assessment
  • Action Plan
  • Staff Awareness and Training
  • Welfare and pastoral care
  • IT policies
  • External Speakers and Events
  • Monitoring and enforcement

Organisations, using Stedfast, will be able to allocate judgments to individual members of staff who will then self assessment, grade and identify strengths and areas for improvement that can then be added to the organisational quality improvement plan.

About Stedfast

Stedfast is a quality improvement system designed for FE colleges and independent training providers. It allows organisations to manage their self assessment and quality improvement planning. We have also recently released a policies and procedures module that allows organisations to ensure that policies and procedures are managed and reviewed. Future modules being developed for release include:

  • Risk Assessment
  • Staff CPD
  • Observation of teaching and learning

Stedfast is an online collaborative tool that aims to bring together all aspects of quality assurance and to ensure that organisations are fully prepared for OfSTED inspection. It can be accessed by staff through any web browser and is simple to use.

For any organisation interested in seeing the system then please contact us for a free, no obligation online demonstration.

We also offer consultancy advice to organisations looking to improve their self assessment and quality improvement planning.
