Annual Level 1 Certificate in Online Safety for Non-teaching Staff (2020-21)

About the Course

Duration: 35 mins (approx)

Safeguarding and online safety is everybody’s responsibility. The most effective approach is by engaging the whole school community, including non-teaching staff, who should be aware and be able to recognise any difficulties relating to online safety.

Our Level 1 Certificate in Online Safety provides non-teaching staff with the core content they need to feel confident and empowered to tackle online safety issues head on. Delivered in high-quality video CPD format that has been skilfully organised for busy workloads and is accessible on any device, anytime, anywhere, our online safety training has been designed to provide maximum learning potential in the leanest, most cost effective and most time-efficient manner.

Delivered by subject matter expert, Lorna Ponambalum, the course has been divided into five easy-to-digest modules and contains links to further learning and resources throughout, with a knowledge assessment at the end to help you evidence your compliance in L1 online safety.
