This social media course provides practitioners who work with children with a greater understanding of the technology that young people use as well as identifying associated risks.  It also provides delegates with tools that support young people in staying safe and with signposted resources that can build awareness with families. It is available to all professionals and volunteers working with children within Hampshire.

Learning Outcomes:

  • Develop or strengthen understanding of safeguarding in the context of children’s lives and their use of social media
  • Become more confident in identifying how our most vulnerable children can be supported with going online
  • Explore a range of applications currently used by children
  • Develop an enhanced awareness of how children can be exploited and/or abused online, including the tactics and technology used by perpetrators
  • Develop your ability to support children in staying safe online, formulating prevention and intervention strategies with children and their families
  • Explore the role of parents/carers in keeping children safe online, including the importance of consent when posting content and images (sharenting)
  • Explore how professionals can raise awareness around online safety and support families with online risks and behaviours
