Who is it aimed at?

The conference is aimed at Head teachers, ICT co-ordinators, Child Protection Officers and anyone concerned with the E-safety agenda within your school


Why is E-safety important?

There are many benefits of the computer age and one of these is that children are becoming smarter. They are growing up computer literate and will have that as a huge advantage. Computer literacy is becoming an essential job qualification and feeling comfortable with computers will put them a step ahead. The internet provides a vast library of information which children can access quickly and easily. The information is in a variety of formats – games, information, flash sites – which makes it suitable and appealing to most children. The Internet is a daily part of modern educational life, along with other communications technologies. Our young people are voracious consumers of information and need the skills and understanding to navigate safely and effectively through life. As professionals working with young people and technology, this is where we can make a difference.


By attending our conference you will access the latest training, information and resources in current education E-safety thinking. You will receive CEOP (Child Exploitation and Online Protection) training and resources to use with young people, advice and guidance on writing and updating your Acceptable Use Policy and free E-safety resources produced by the young people of Manchester. You will also have the opportunity to hear guest speakers from Manchester Healthy Schools and Greater Manchester Police.


Important Information: To attend this course, you must bring a current CRB check to the conference to access the CEOP training.
