With internet safety now an important part of the curriculum, we know that teachers and other educators need an up to date understanding of how the internet and social media impact on the lives of children and young people and how to manage the inherent risks.

Issues covered during the day include personal information, social networking, downloading, online grooming, sexting, cyberbullying, gaming, digital footprints, online reputation, and more.

Course Outcomes: Participants will have:

  • Explored how children and young people engage with the internet and social media, how it can impact on their lives and how they can assist them to manage some of the inherant risks
  • Developed their knowledge about how offenders can abuse through the use of online activities
  • Considered strategies for making children and young people safer online and how to raise awareness of the risks for parents, families and educators

This course would be ideal for Headteachers, Designated Safeguarding Leads, other Senior Staff and IT leads in Education

Michael Smith

Michael has been facilitating courses on E-safety for 13 years to a wide variety of settings and audiences. Using his expertise in internet use and his knowledge of the history of social interaction online he has developed a series of training events exploring how children and young people use the internet and the inherent risks that exist with that behaviour. On his courses he also explores how perpetrators use social media and other tactics on line to contact and carry out acts of abuse

All courses are offered in a ‘safe environment’ and are designed to provide attendees with increased knowledge, skills and strategies they can take away and use to help advise and protect children and young people.
