About The Webinar

Understanding the Updated UKCIS Online Safety Audit Tool for ITTs and ECTs

Webinar duration: 66 minutes (approx.)

This webinar will provide senior leaders, designated safeguarding leads, online safety leads and mentors of trainee and early careers teachers (ECTs), with practical advice and support on ensuring trainee teachers and ECTs understand their role in keeping children safe online.

On 6 October 2022, the UK Council for Internet Safety (UKCIS) published their updated online safety audit tool for trainee and ECTs and guidance for ITT/ECT mentors. The documents should be used to provide ongoing support, development and monitoring of teachers’ understanding of online safety in education and strengthen their awareness of policy and practice.

This webinar will provide information and guidance on what settings need to cover as part of the induction process, understanding the key themes and how to implement effective and continuous learning mechanisms to help safeguard children online.
