About The Course

Annual Award in Online Safety for Parents & Carers of Children aged 14-18 (International)

Presented by Myleene Klass

Children aged between 14 and 18 will have already seen the positives the internet can offer but will most likely have experienced something negative online. How they represent themselves and their image online is just as important as how they look in real life so it’s important to take an active interest in your child’s online safety.

That’s why we’ve created this online safety course for parents and carers – to provide you with the knowledge and skills you need to feel confident and empowered to keep your children safe online.

Developed by our safeguarding experts and presented by TV presenter, musician and passionate online safety advocate, Myleene Klass, this course takes you on a detailed journey through your child’s digital habits, explaining the type of online world they’re experiencing now, what risks they might be exposed to and just what you can do to support.

Learning Outcomes

  • Understanding the online world today and striking a balance between promoting the positive use of the internet and safeguarding children from harm.
  • Recognising how children at this age are interacting with the online world, the technology they’re using and what games and platforms are most popular.
  • Identifying the common risks that children at this age are most vulnerable to and the range of online harms to be aware of.
  • Understanding what steps to take to support a culture of online safety at home and help build children’s digital resilience.
  • Recognising the importance of communicating with children at all times, keeping an open dialogue and providing children with the tools they need to keep themselves safe.
