Full Prevent statutory guidance published

The Home Office has published a complete version of the Prevent statutory guidance for higher education institutions, which now includes content on external speakers and events. 

The guidance for England and Wales can be found here and the guidance for Scottish institutions can be found here

It is still not clear when the duty will take effect in higher education institutions. Parliament has now risen for the summer recess and will not reconvene until 7 September 2015. The guidance will be debated at some point thereafter (date to be confirmed) and a commencement order laid confirming the implementation date for the duty.
