An exciting opportunity to become a Digital Champion!

Published: 7th November 2018

Do you have a passion for promoting online safety? Do you have a desire to help other young people? Do you have knowledge of the Childnet Digital Leaders online platform? Then this exciting new role is the one for you!

The Childnet Digital Leaders Programme is proud to be a youth-led and youth focused programme. However, we are continually striving to make it even better – this is where our first ever group of Digital Champions come in!

Our Digital Champions will represent the entire Digital Leader community from across the UK. They will meet and collaborate with other Digital Leaders outside of their school and they will be Childnet’s ‘go-to’ group for new and exciting developments on the platform and the programme. If you have great ideas about developing new modules and activities on the platform and would like first-hand access to fun and engaging opportunities, then becoming a Digital Champion is the role for you!

In addition to all of these awesome perks, Digital Champions may have the opportunity to attend our regional and national events as well as speak with and give advice to big tech companies and schools on how to keep other young people safe online – wow!

You may be thinking this is a little daunting? But have no fear, as you will receive specialist training on leadership, media and technology throughout.

All we ask from you is that you kindly commit for 8 months from December-July of the 2018-19 academic year. During these 8 months we would require one Skype call per month as well as the occasional additional participation work – this shouldn’t take any more than 3 hours per month. For more information on this, please check out the information pack

If you answered yes to all of the questions at the start, and believe you have what it takes to become a Digital Champion, then please fill out the application form included in the  information pack or fill out the online form at (please copy and paste link) and return all your signed consent forms by Friday 30th November.

We are super excited to hear from you and receive your applications. Good luck!
