Developing your Online Safeguarding – Artswork

An online session as an introduction to current safeguarding guidance and best practice, specifically relating to work with children and young people online

Posted: 08/06/2020

This course is provided by Artsworks.

As organisations and individuals adjust to the current climate and move programmes and activities online, they may find themselves needing new approaches and guidance around safeguarding children, young people and adults at risk. This could be an opportune moment to assess the new areas of work that you deliver, and the risks they may pose, in light of safeguarding legislation.

This 2.5 hour session will provide an update on current safeguarding guidance and best practice, specifically relating to working with children, young people and adults at risk in an online environment. It will give you an opportunity to reflect on your own organisations policy and practice, and consider the risks and areas of concern that may be encountered when working online.
