Identify the Risks to Children Posed Online

This is an introductory course for all staff and volunteers working directly with children in schools. This course looks at the main risks to children online, considers the major platforms that children use (social media, gaming and live streaming) and examines how each of those platforms poses a different risk to children. We will consider how children can abuse each other online and then examine how we can work to keep children safe.

What You Can Expect

This course is an on demand video course that you can watch at a pace to suit you. The content is delivered in bite sized videos that will take less than an hour to watch in total. Implementing the ideas will take longer of course!

Whilst the videos are designed to be watched as a series, you might choose to come back and dip in and out of particular modules to refresh your knowledge.

At the end of the course there is a short activity to help you reflect on what you’ve learned and consider how to take it forwards. It’s absolutely up to you whether you decide to do this, but many people who do tell us that it helps them to apply what they’ve learned to their current context and think clearly about what practical next steps they can take to have a positive impact with their new knowledge, understanding and skills.
