Course outline

This course for foster carers and professionals will explore how to keep children and young people safe and resilient when using new technology, gaming and digital applications.

This course will enable participants to:

  • Explore the internet and new technologies in order to learn what children and young people are doing now, what technology and apps they are using and taking a closer look at what is currently popular for this age group including apps like TikTok and Instagram. We will improve understanding of these apps and associated risky behaviours

  • Offer some practical advice and resources to help your children stay safe and healthy online.

  • Clarify the key principles of effective education and support to influence children and young people to make good choices.

  • Support children keeping themselves safe online from unsolicited contact from birth families and consider the nuances of foster young people seeking to find birth families online.
