Digital Parenting Training
Digital Parenting training (formerly known as Digital Parenting Facilitator training) is for anyone working with parents and families - teachers, social workers, police officers, etc. We'll show you how to pass on your knowledge to parents so they can take their offline parenting skills online and help their children stay safe in the digital world.
Once you're a trained facilitator, you'll get a suite of fully adaptable online resources (including PowerPoint presentations, hand-outs, short films and top tips) all designed to be used with parents on the subject of online safety. New resources are added monthly during term time. To view a sample of a resource, click here. In addition, you'll receive an exclusive 3 module parenting course that you can deliver in your setting - this is only available to professionals who attend this course.
You'll also be able to access our online community, enabling you to discuss and share best practice with other likeminded professionals. We've got over 1000 teachers, social workers and other facilitators signed up so far.
Our expert trainers can come to you and run Digital Parenting Training in your setting. Get in touch with firstname.lastname@example.org for more information or to book a session.
Trained facilitators receive one month free access to Digital Safety membership (including our fortnightly resources, online forum and member support manager). The course costs £199 plus VAT.

‘I attended a training course in September 2014 and this has really assisted my thinking in how better to engage with parents around this crucial area of safeguarding. Parent Zone approaches internet safety with the aim of making practitioners aware of the risks, and how to deal with them, rather than approaching it from a culture of being risk averse.’
Debbie Schofield, ICTinspires:
‘After attending training I updated my parent presentation to reflect the Digital Parenting 'Where, Who What' approach. It has been incredibly well received by parents and gives them a clear foundation on which to start those essential conversations with their children.’
‘I have used the resources to deliver e-safety workshops to parents at schools and churches and have found them useful in my preparation and delivery. There are plenty of resources that are useful in getting parents to take their offline skills into the online world as they seek to keep up with, and support their children in the digital age.’
