Safeguarding and online contexts

29 February @ 11:00 AM - 12:00 PM

Course outline:

Online contexts are now a key feature of all safeguarding topics.  This webinar explores the online contexts linked to three key safeguarding topics.  What should we be looking out for, what responses should we be preparing, and how can we minimise harm whilst supporting children and young people to get the best out of the online world.

  • The scope of online contexts in safeguarding practice
