This is an introductory course for all staff and volunteers working directly with children in schools. This course looks at the main risks to children online, considers the major platforms that children use (social media, gaming and live streaming) and examines how each of those platforms poses a different risk to children. We will consider how children can abuse each other online and then examine how we can work to keep children safe.
