What is Be in Ctrl?

The Be in Ctrl resource focuses on the online sexual coercion and extortion of children by adults but this behaviour can also exist in a peers’ environment.

The Be in Ctrl resource complements Lockers and both resources focus on educating pupils on appropriate online behaviour and developing a culture of reporting concerns while fostering empathy, respect and resilience. It is recommended Lockers is used in the SPHE class before the Be in Ctrl resource.

Be In Ctrl

Garda Schools Programme

The Garda Schools Programme provides information to young people on substance use, personal safety, and cyber safety, and achieves this through Gardaí visiting the classroom and engaging in discussion with the students. The Garda Schools Programme is an integrated part of the SPHE programme. A possible precursor to using this resource is to have the Gardaí deliver lesson one, and the ‘Be in Ctrl talk’ as part of the Garda Schools Programme.
