A basic awareness DVD/CD training pack for practitioners working with children or adult offenders
Aimed at staff working in the prison and probation services and social care, but equally relevant to the health and education sector, with a focus on safeguarding children.
Designed to promote thinking and discussion about the subject as well as to be informative.
Children and the Net can be used as a one-day programme or adapted to suit the knowledge, experience and roles of particular audiences. It consists of a CD and DVD.
The DVD contains three videos:
The story of ICT
How do children use ICT?
My day - a dramatised scenario in two parts, illustrating the vulnerability of children and young people to those who seek to harm them and some of the tactics they use.

The CD contains:
guidance for trainers and trainer notes
handouts and task sheets
a references and resources list with links to useful documents and websites
low-resolution video clips for use when preparing to deliver training.
Children and the Net will give participants an awareness of information technology and the way children use it, as well as the behaviour of adults who seek to harm children. It will enable staff and practitioners to contribute to the safeguarding of children and young people more effectively.
By the end of the course participants will be able to:
describe some of the developments in ICT
demonstrate an understanding of how children and young people use ICT
name the main areas of risk to children and young people in their use of ICT
identify the main features of the legislation, guidance and procedures relevant to safeguarding children and young people within ICT
describe some of the ways in which ICT is used by those who present a risk to children
identify practice issues in relation to their work with children and young people or adults.
Commissioned by the Home Office and produced by the NSPCC in partnership with NCH, Children and the Net resource was developed with the assistance of staff from the prison and probation services, Nottingham social services and the BBC.
