E-Safety Training and Guidance for Faith Leaders and Institutions

As faith institutions and out-of-school settings across Europe increasingly work online, it is essential that children, staff and volunteers are safeguarded from potentially harmful and inappropriate online materials. EFI’s E-Safety training addresses this topic, and is adaptable to all faiths and denominations.

The aim of the training is to promote online safety, ensuring faith leaders, community members and students are aware of the risks and how to mitigate these.

The training is delivered by EFI’s accredited safeguarding team, who have years of experience specifically with places of worship, and who ensure the content is up to date. It is interactive, illustrating thhe information conveyed with real-life case studies.

The training is based on the concept of ‘Digital Citizenship’ which refers to the responsible use of technology by anyone who uses computers, the internet and digital devices to engage with others in society on any level. Topics covered in the training are as follows:

  • Different types of social media
  • Technology and online safety risks, especially for children, including cyber-bullying and sexual exploitation
  • Importance of e-safety, and of educating and empowering children
  • Ensuring safe technology and prevention measures for e-abuse, such as filters and monitoring
  • Dealing with disclosures and e-safety incidents
  • Digital Citizenship
