Kit to help teachers identify 'radicalised' students

TEACHERS across the nation now have access to information designed to help them identify whether a student has become radicalised.

The information kit will help teachers understand the radicalisation process and how to respond if they are concerned about someone they know.

Justice Minister Michael Keenan said school communities were important environments that could support vulnerable youth and address radicalisation to violent extremism.

He said the first step was to help schools understand what radicalisation is and what it is not.

"Radicalisation does not just impact the individual; it has profound effects on those around them and our country as a whole," he said.

"The best way to build resilience to violent ideologies is through families, friends, communities and local institutions.

"The people who are most likely to have a positive impact on someone at risk will be people they trust - parents, friends, teachers or community leaders."
