The NSPCC has recently launched an updated version of its popular introductory safeguarding course.

This online course, aimed at anyone working with young people, will help learners gain the skills they need to keep children safe online.

What's included?

The Keeping children safe online course provides a fully up-to-date snapshot of how children use the internet, and what professionals can do to protect them from harm.

The NSPCC and CEOP have worked in partnership on the course, which contains information and advice on a whole range of topics, including:

  • risks children take online
  • sexting
  • cyberbullying
  • online grooming and abuse

This e-learning course takes approximately 4 hours – you can complete it at your own pace, whenever and wherever you want. Learners don’t need any previous child-protection training to take the course.
