About The Course

Online Safety Course for ICT Leads (2019-20)

Introduction
Online safety in schools is of paramount importance. As the online world evolves, so do both the online risks facing our children and the relevant legislation, both statutory and non-statutory, which directs and guides how schools should meet their online safety requirements.

The role of ICT Leads
ICT Leads play a vital role in developing and enhancing children’s learning around online safety. They are central to progressing policy and process and in helping to shape how young people acquire the skills to use ICT effectively, confidently and safely.

What you will learn
Beginning with the basics, this course will address the importance of online safety and the role of ICT Leads and school staff within a legislative framework. You will then learn of the ways in which children are engaging with the online world before moving into a comprehensive analysis of the range of online dangers which children may encounter. Finally, you will learn about how to protect children with SEND and why these children are particularly vulnerable to online risks.

Course Curriculum
With a delivery that easy to follow and a range of interactive features, including links to references, statistics, real world examples, news stories, videos and knowledge tests, the course will ensure your learning experience is as seamless and engaging as it can be.
