Organisation Description

National Online Safety has a Whole School Community approach to Online Safety training for schools.

Our NOS Certified School Community package encompasses CPD accredited Online Safety e-learning training course for school staff, an interactive e-learning course for parents and engaging classroom resources to educate children about the dangers of the internet.

All school staff who complete the Online Safety for School Staff training course are awarded a CPD accredited certificate to demonstrate as evidence of their training for an Ofsted inspection.
