This three hour Internet Safety course helps individuals working with children to get up-to-speed with the on-line threats faced by looked after children. The on-line world is such a rapidly changing environment it can be difficult to keep up with the ever changing nature and dangers of the environment

  • Software and hardware to prevent access to inappropriate content and prevent unauthorised contact.
  • Spotting online ‘friends’ who might not be who they say they are.
  • Incorporating Internet safety into the safer caring plan.

State the pros and cons of cyber space in relation to children
