Online Safety Live kicks off

19 Sep 2017 Andy Robinson

Online Safety Live is the UK’s largest online safety professional development programme for the children’s workforce and this week we set off again for another year.

Delivered by the specialists at SWGfL, this coming year Online Safety Live will see more than 40 events delivered right across the UK, each providing delegates with all the latest online safety information, research, resources and tools within the two hour session. It doesn’t stop there either, as all delegates are provided with course content and further reading to build their own knowledge and skills.

Online Safety Live events are free to attend, made possible thanks to the kind support from BT, Sky, Virgin and TalkTalk, as well as those who kindly donate the use of venues, our partners from Welsh and Scottish Governments and co-presenters C2K.

What’s in it for you?

Positive impact on the children’s workforce and better outcomes for children:

The feedback from 4,951 evaluations has been considerable and extraordinary:

  • 96% said that they are likely to educate children to stay safe online
  • 99% said they will share with their colleagues
  • 98% said they were better equipped to manage online safety

Positive impact for the whole of the UK:

One of the most important aspects of the programme is that it is delivered in venues across the country, from large purpose built theatres to small community halls. Providing access to this information in small rural areas is as important as large audiences. The entire children’s workforce has the right to access information on how to educate and protect young people online.
