Staying Safe Online at the Army Foundation College

We are supporting Safer Internet Day, 7 Feb 2017, #SID2017,

Students at the AFC in Harrogate will take part in their own ‘Safer Internet Fortnight’ as part of the global Safer Internet campaign.

Monday 30 January marks the start of two weeks promotion of Safer Internet Day 2017 at the Army Foundation College. Junior Soldiers will take part in a full programme of events and activities aimed at raising awareness of online safety issues and encouraging the safe and positive use of technology.

Safer Internet Day 2017 itself will take place on Tuesday 7 February with the theme 'Be the change: Unite for a better internet'.

Celebrated globally and coordinated in the UK by the UK Safer Internet Centre, the campaign sees hundreds of schools and organisations join together to increase awareness of online safety issues and run events and activities right across the country.

Safer Internet Day 2016 reached 2.8 million UK children and 2.5 million UK parents. Following the event, an evaluation found that the majority of children spoke to their families about staying safe online while 87% felt more confident about what to do about any worries online.

Due to the apprenticeship requirements, certain assessments for the Heating & Plumbing trade can only be completed face-to-face, meaning that a Pearson TQ assessor needed to be dispatched to the Falklands.
