E-Safety Live 2012
E-Safety Live, now in its 6th year, is a landmark event held in Edinburgh and London bringing together online safety providers, industry leaders and experts in the field of internet safety to participate and discuss the latest online safety topics.
The events will consist of workshops and a networking exhibitor fair, and will focus on ways to better help safeguard children, as well as professionals, when online.
SQA will be delivering two workshop sessions at the event in Edinburgh. These sessions will provide an overview of the qualifications available to schools and colleges in the field of online child protection, including our newly updated Internet Safety Award. Part of the workshop will discuss the contents of this updated qualification along with the support materials available to help deliver it, including materials that can be delivered on a mobile phone.
We will also have an exhibition stand at the Edinburgh event where you can find out more and speak to us about our qualifications in online protection.
