Practitioner consultation on the latest esafety resource from CEOP’s Thinkuknow education programme
education programme endeavours to empower young people online through education.
It has a range of resources that have been developed for use with children aged
from 4-16, helping them to identify the risks they may face online and teaching
them how to protect themselves and places to seek further support. CEOP's range of
preventative films, presentations, lesson plans and guidance are free for
practitioners in the children's workforce to access and deliver directly to the
young people they work with. Through this cascade model practitioners have used
Thinkuknow resources with children and young people on over 11 million occasions
since the programme's establishment in 2006.
In October this
year CEOP's Thinkuknow education programme is planning to release its next
resource to practitioners. The resource, First to a Million, is a 20 minute
interactive drama highlighting the places that young people can go to report and
seek support should things get out of control online. The resource is aimed
broadly at secondary school aged children however CEOP is considering developing
supporting materials for younger children which would include the film's key
messages in an audience appropriate format.
experienced practitioners is really important to CEOP in the development of the
guidance and lesson plans that they create to support our resources. CEOP will be
conducting a virtual consultation with practitioners who work with young people
in a variety of settings across the UK, which will directly shape the guidance
we develop. The consultation will open the week commencing 30th July and will
close 17th August. CEOP
appreciate that this is during the summer holidays but they anticipate that this
will only take up a short amount of time and its important that CEOP ensure
as much feedback as possible.
