Our online training courses are simple to distribute and monitor. They are a cost effective way to make sure your whole school community receives regular up-to-date training. With no 'per-user' costs, you can distribute the training to as many staff, parents, governors and pupils as you need and can repeat the training as often as necessary.

With regard to Internet safety, Ofsted have highlighted that staff training and development is one of the weakest aspects of E-Safety provision in schools. They also recommend that parents take a role in ensuring their children remain safe online. The E-safety Support online training courses make it easy for your school to ensure you have trained your staff and parents and the reporting tools monitor this for you.
