Course Description:

We understand how hard it is to keep up with the latest online sites and apps our children engage with, so this beginner level course will help you to understand some of the basics so that you can keep your child safe.

The course will introduce you to strategies and tools for keeping your children safe whilst browsing the internet and engaging with social networking sites.

You will learn about parental controls and in-app purchases, device security, how to protect your personal information as well as controlling privacy settings and how to seek advice and support should you need it.

How will the course be delivered?

The course will be delivered on a residential basis, over two days and one night.  The course will include a blend of classroom based activities and some individual work alone.
