As mosques and out-of-school settings, including madrassahs increasingly work online, it is essential that children, staff and volunteers are safeguarded from potentially harmful and inappropriate online materials. Our e-safety training addresses this topic through covering categories of risk, why e-safety is important and definitions of good e-safety practice in the Mosque and Madrassah. We make sure the content is up to date and at the end of the training, each attendee is provided with their own certificate.
The training is interactive with useful information and real-life cases from the Madrassah and Mosque sector to help you understand your responsibilities. It is delivered by one of our accredited Safeguarding trainers who has been delivering safeguarding training to Mosques for 15 years.
An added aspect of the training is based on our Muslim Digital Citizens guides, which is a resource we developed, with support from Google.org, to highlight the rights and responsibilities of Muslims on the online world. This training is designed for Imams, teachers and mosque leaders, we aim to educate and teach the leadership about digital citizenship and train them so they can deliver lessons and session planning to their congregations independently.
