Overview

With 3 in 4 children having a social media presence, local authorities and schools are under increasing pressure to safeguard children from the threats posed by the digital environment.

Online risks, ranging from: cyberbullying and child sexual exploitation to radicalisation and access to inappropriate content are on the rise. Coupled with the increasing rates of online addiction, means that further education is required for children and parents. In addition, local authorities and schools must have a robust e-safety policy that minimise these threats.

This highly interactive course helps you to ensure your organisation has the tools to protect children online. Take away tips to help you educate your pupils and staff of the dangers that the digital environment presents.
