Online safety training for schools

Helping you stay up to date

CPD certified digital safeguarding training from the experts at eSafe

Regular online safety training is a must for professionals dealing with children and young people.

Our highly experienced team of online safety experts, immersed in the online world and the present dangers, deliver a wide range of CPD certified training sessions to local authorities, schools and colleges across the UK.

The online world brings many positives and possibilities, but it’s full of risks and constantly in flux. Unsurprisingly, then, it can be difficult for professionals working with children and young people to understand the role the plethora of online platforms play in their lives - and the associated risks. Yet this understanding is necessary to be able to successfully support them, and to deliver the statutory obligations laid out by the Department for Education (KCSiE, last updated Sept 2020).

That’s why we offer online safety training and awareness courses to all audiences – leadership teams in local authorities, schools and colleges, teaching staff, parents/carers, governors and trust members - including the learners themselves.

The feedback was really good following the training sessions [to Tameside secondary schools and LA staff] and inspired school staff to go back to their respective schools to review their safeguarding arrangements.

Thank you again for the training yesterday. The staff were still talking about how good it was after you left….. everyone appreciated the knowledgeable and friendly tone you had. Other Esafety CPD people have been a bit too scaremongering. I’ll be following up with staff to ensure it is part of lessons and circle time. I will also look into another parent session.
