This programme has been designed to be delivered to students in Year 10
Can students from different classes take part? Will different sessions need to be held for students in different classes?
Yes, it is up to the schools to decide the students that will take part in the programme. Our in-school delivery sessions can cater for many students at one time so there will be no need for separate sessions.
All the resources for the sessions will be provided by us. All we will require is a suitable space to deliver the sessions (such as an assembly hall). Schools will have access to our online portal to access the resources needed for tasks and activities outside sessions.
To help plan your curriculum accordingly, we have divided the programme into five 2-hour sessions which will be delivered monthly from September to February. This includes time with the whole class as well as individual time with the Digital Safety Ambassadors and Citizens.
The sessions will be delivered by our project team who will work with the lead teacher to ensure they are productive and enjoyable.
