Online Safety

Global Skills Training Ltd. (Global Skills) recognises the importance of effectively using technology in apprenticeships which enables all learners to acquire digital, technical, and transferable skills. As a result, Global Skills has set up a website with the aim of informing current and prospective leaners about Global Skills activities and developments.

There are many advantages to using the internet, however it also carries many risks. These include unwanted contacts, cyber-bullying, radicalisation toward extremism and terrorism, inappropriate content, and commercial exploitation.

Through our safeguarding and administrative teams, Global Skills is focused on raising awareness and understanding of e-safety issues and providing easily accessible e-safety resources for all learners and staff. CLICK HERE to download the Global Skills Training Online Safety Booklet.
