Training and Support

For many years we have been invited to present workshops and talks at conferences and events for educators in Ireland on the issues for schools and teachers that arise from children’s use of the internet.


Sharing our knowledge and expertise with existing professional networks is a core part of what we do. We deliver workshops at the JMB Annual Conference, at the LETB Student Support Team Annual Conference, MITE, and other events for pre-service teachers. If you are an organisation that supports young people we can also provide staff training in online safety. We have previously provided training to many agencies and organisations including; Tusla, Foster Carers Ireland, Parentline and many more.


Below is a list of the resources that we have available to teachers and details of their content. Please get in touch using the CONTACT US form if you think we could add value to your event. Send us a description of the event you are organising including details of the venue, proposed date, number and nature of participants, and the purpose of the event. We get a lot of requests to deliver workshops; unfortunately, we don’t have the resources to facilitate everyone. We prioritise opportunities to speak to networks of educators and school leaders.


*Please note that we are a very small team and as a result, we don’t have the capacity to deliver in school teacher training or talks for parents.
