The Childnet Digital Leaders Programme is a youth leadership training programme empowering young people to educate their peers about online safety.

Childnet is a leading online safety charity with a mission to make the internet a great and safe place for children and young people. We are the only online safety charity in the UK delivering an online peer-to-peer training programme that directly helps education settings embed a comprehensive approach to online safety.

Groups of Digital Leaders complete training on an interactive, informative and fun gamified platform. They work through online modules, equipping them with the skills they need to go on to educate and support their peers.
