Who is the training for?

A whole-school approach to online safety means we provide tailored learning for Safeguarding Leads, teachers, parents, carers and school staff, together with age-appropriate advice and guidance for students.

Why is it useful?

Our training for school communities helps to develop resilience, confidence in pathways for help against online harms and promotes an active and collaborative learning environment where the whole school can flourish. Parents can learn independently and improve their communication skills in a co-learning approach with young people in their care. Courses also cover ‘good practice’ tips for utilising virtual platforms and accessing online resources.

“I messaged my DSL halfway through the training to say how we needed to get this information across to our kids and our staff. I have learnt so much!! Thank you!”
