About The Course

Annual Certificate in Online Safety for Parents & Carers of Children aged 11-14

Course Duration: 39 minutes (approx.)

Children aged between 11 and 14 are usually confident in their online abilities; technology is integral to their life and they often know what content they like to consume and how. Social media, gaming online and messaging apps become more popular, which means greater opportunities to communicate with others, so it’s important to take an active interest in your child’s online safety.

Our annual online safety training for parents and carers provides you with the knowledge and skills you need to feel confident and empowered to help keep children safe online.

Split into bite-sized modules, the training has been designed to provide maximum learning potential in the leanest, most cost-effective and most time-efficient manner. It has been produced in high-quality remote video CPD format which is accessible on any device, any time, anywhere.

Developed by Heather Cardwell, experienced online safety lead and senior school leader, the course is split into five modules and encourages parent interaction to support and embed learning. There is also a knowledge assessment at the end to help consolidate your knowledge.
