Carers cyber resilience training
We have worked with the Scottish Government to develop cyber resilience and online safety training for kinship carers. The programme is designed to be delivered to carers by their social workers, either in groups or individually.
The course focuses on the basic awareness of relevant issues and help carers talk to their child about being safe online and developing skills. The training course also includes up to date resources and organisations that can provide further advice and support.
Evaluation forms for this training can be requested from our team.
There is an online Cyber resilience and internet safety training leaflet that supports this training and is available for download by clicking on the image below
