Book your Online Safety Training from the UK Safer Internet Centre

12 Jun 2020 Andy Robinson

As a result of the COVID-19 pandemic more and more people are now spending more time online. Because of this, online safety training for young people, their parents and those working with children is now more important than ever. This is why we are delighted to offer remote online safety training sessions for those who need it.

Lockdown restrictions have prevented many things from happening. However, it has also seen an increase in the amount of time many of us spend online. Video conferencing has become a significant form of communication over the past couple of months whilst social media, gaming and smart phones have all continued to play a major part in our day to day lives.

As the UK continues to follow new instructions around lockdown, it is important to keep up-to-date on the latest online safety information as technology continues to develop.
