How was Essential CPD created?
Over 10,000 school leaders attend a webinar with National Online Safety each year so we asked them to help us design a CPD solution for their workforce. The feedback was as follows:
- It must be cost-effective to support schools with current budget issues
- Don't overwhelm staff with unnecessary courses. Focus on the essential CPD linked to statutory guidance.
- Deliver the training in a quick engaging way that is sensitive to busy workloads in a school.
- Make it easy to roll-out the training, track progress and download certificates to evidence compliance.
Using these guiding principles, National Online Safety worked with schools to develop Essential CPD.
