E-safety & Bullying Online Course

Bullying / Cyberbullying & E-Safety
This Short Online Course is intended for all children’s workforce practitioners, i.e.... all staff who work with children, young people and their families. 
Although this course forms part of an induction programme for new starters, it is also intended for all practitioners who want to improve their knowledge and continue their professional development. 
Children and young people who are bullied need positive strategies to empower them to cope, to develop constructive ways of dealing with the bully and even help change the bully’s behaviour. 
This course will enable you to: 
- Learn the definition of bullying and cyberbullying

- Understand the different types of bullying

- Learn the signs of bullying

- Learn about the technologies used by cyber bullies

- Know what to do if you suspect a child is being bullied or cyber bullied
The course is broken into three modules:
1. Bullying
2. Cyberbullying
3. E-safety
Since the publication of the Byron Review (2008), E-Safety has become increasingly important. This report looked at the risk to child safety of exposure to harmful or inappropriate material on the Internet, and the measures in place to prevent children from being exposed to such material.
Within this section, we aim to increase your awareness of E-Safety; what can go wrong and what you should do if things go wrong. We also cover bullying and cyber-bullying and how to approach it. 

This course takes approximately 2hrs – 3hrs to complete.
  Although there is no set time limit as it is down to how fast or slow you want to take each course and whether or not you want to take a course in one sitting or in stages.
How does it work?
Beginning with Module 1, read through each module carefully, and at your own pace, ensuring that you have understood and absorbed its content.  On completing a module, you will attempt to answer the corresponding questionnaire for that module. 
Each questionnaire is presented in a multiple choice format; simply select the answer you believe is correct and click on the ‘Next’ button.
Your score for each questionnaire appears as soon as you have completed the last question. If you have attained the pass criteria of 70%, you can move on to the next module.
You have 1 attempt to pass each questionnaire; if you fail to reach 70% per questionnaire, you may still access and complete other parts of the program but will need to repeat the programme again (at an extra cost to you) in order to receive your course certificate.
To complete the programme, you must work through all the modules, as well as attain the pass criteria for that programme.  You may exit the programmes at any point and return later, when you log back in the programme, you will automatically be returned to the place you left off.
On completion of the programme and if you have achieved a pass rate you will be able to download your course certificate.
In this programme we use children and young people interchangeably.  There are variations in terminology, legislation, guidance and practice relating to child protection in the different nations of the UK. However, the principles are broadly the same and this programme is intended to be relevant to all those whose work (paid or unpaid) brings them into contact with children and young people.
