Online safety live events


Online Safety Live is a programme of FREE online safety briefings designed exclusively for professionals working with children and young people.

Delivered across the whole of the UK by SWGfL (South West Grid for Learning), we bring these events locally to you or online with all the very latest in online safety, including the latest issues, trends, research, resources and advice. We have been delivering this programme up and down the country for the past 5 years and spoken to over 15,000 professionals working with children and young people in over 350 events.

That was genuinely one of the most inspiring, informative and invaluable CPD sessions I have ever been to in 11 years of teaching. Thank you so much for the briefing and for giving up additional time at the end of the session to share information about the projectEVOLVE knowledge maps.” – Tom, Bradford

These sessions are completely free. They are 90 minutes long and all delegates receive exclusive access to an online resources area following the event.

Filtering and Monitoring Sessions

The UK Safer Internet Centre, on behalf of the Department for Education (DfE), delivered a series of online webinars on filtering and monitoring. The webinars informed schools and colleges in England about the changes to Keeping children safe in education which comes into force from September 2023 as well as the DfE’s new filtering and monitoring standards which were published in 2023.

These five, 30-minute sessions are for professionals in England working with children and young people. Specifically, they will support schools and colleges to be able to meet the filtering and monitoring standards in order to better protect children and young people online.

“It was a very interesting and informative session with an abundance of helpful online resources”

“Thank you for the information you shared I found it really helpful – especially looking at where to get resources and help!”

“I am a Governor with educational background. The training received was comprehensive, enlightening and relevant. I have already contacted the school and recommended the training for members of staff”
