Take a look behind the scenes of the Childnet Digital Leaders Programme

Published: 16th October 2018

Education settings and youth groups can now register their interest in the Childnet Digital Leaders Programme to receive a free guest login.

What is the Digital Leaders Programme?

The Childnet Digital Leaders Programme empowers children and young people to champion digital citizenship and digital creativity within their schools and to educate their peers, parents and teachers about staying safe online. The programme aims to make online safety learning fun and effective, and helps schools work towards an outstanding whole school community approach to online safety.

With 2000 qualified Digital Leaders across the UK and wider, the programme allows young people to be a part of a wider network, sharing ideas and best practice with other Digital Leaders.

“Digital Leaders have enjoyed it and are enthusiastic. They worked really well as a team. They are becoming more confident and have enjoyed planning how to help each other.”

– Teacher, Primary Digital Leaders School.

The Digital Leaders Platform

Schools joining the programme will have access to our online training platforms for primary or secondary schools. Young people will have the opportunity to increase their knowledge, influence their communities through the Team Achievements, gain recognition and collaborate with other Digital Leaders across the UK.

What does a guest login do?

The guest login allows educators to take a look at the Digital Leaders platform, with a chance to explore some of the key learning modules and other features of the site.

This gives a taste of what the programme feels like for a young person undergoing their training, and can help you to decide as to whether the programme is right for you and the young people you work with.
