If you're concerned about how to keep your children safe online then ChildProtectionCompany.com and PQA have arranged an online course specifically for you. It covers the key elements of e-Safety and what the risks are to children; including internet predators, sexting, social networking and cyberbullying. It also provides information on how you, as a parent, can help reduce these risks and what you should do if a problem occurs. The course also provides links to some great e-Safety resources.
The course has been written by a leading e-Safety expert who has on the ground experience of working with many schools. It comprises 11 short modules followed by an assessment to test understanding. It should take around an hour to complete, although it can be paused and restarted at any time.
