Our webinar’s provide bitesize learning opportunities for you throughout the year on key topics that are important in your union. Here are the webinars that are coming up this week!

Tuesday 24th November; 1pm

Preventing Prevent - #StudentsNotSuspects

What is the Prevent duty, what does it mean for student unions, and crucially - how do we tackle it? The Government is imposing a an act on our Universities and Colleges that forces teachers, academics and counsellors to 'monitor' students at risk of 'extremism'. This is already having a serious impact on students' ability to organise free from harassment and racial profiling. NUS, along with trade unions in the sector, is campaigning to overhaul Prevent.

Tune in to find out more about it and how to get involved.

Presenters:

  • Shelly Asquith - Vice President Welfare
  • Samayya Afzal - Black Students Committee, NEC

Who is it for?: Officers, campaigns staff.
