Annual Certificate in Online Safety for Teaching Staff (2020-21)

About the Course

Duration: 67 mins (approx)

Safeguarding and promoting the welfare of children is everyone’s responsibility. All staff have a responsibility to provide a safe environment in which children can learn. This includes protecting children from online harm and abuse and risks such as CSE, online bullying or online sexual harassment. School staff should receive online safety training that is integrated, aligned and considered as part of the overarching safeguarding approach. (Keeping Children Safe in Education (KCSiE) statutory guidance 2020)

Our Advanced Certificate in Online Safety provides teaching staff with the core content they need to ensure adherence with their online safety statutory requirements. 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 six 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 online safety.
