Parent and Carer Support from the National College

Dear Parents and Carers,

We are delighted to inform you that DBIS has become a member of The National College – a multi-award-winning online training provider for staff and parents.

What does this mean for you?

As part of our membership, The National College provides dedicated training and resources for parents and carers – particularly around online safety and keeping children safe online.

Online safety advice on any topic

Of course, staff will continue to teach children about online safety and digital citizenship. But with the internet so readily accessible, the most effective approach to online safety needs everyone involved, including parents and carers.

That is why you have now got access to hundreds of courses, explainer videos and online safety guides to support your awareness of the online world. Topics range from understanding apps like TikTok and Instagram to recognising the signs of online harm and what you can do to help.

Sign-up is easy

Signing up to the platform is simple. Just follow this LINK and complete your details. Once you are set up, you can choose ‘Parent/Carer’ as your user type and get instant access to all training and resources.

Download the app for free

Another fantastic benefit of The National College is its National Online Safety app, which you can download for free. It gives you access to all their parent and carer resources on the go, whenever you want.

You can download the National Online Safety app using the links below:

They are always here to help

The National College has a brilliant support team if you have any questions. Their help centre provides a comprehensive bank of answers to most FAQs, but if you still can’t find the answer you are looking for, you can always get in contact with them.

I do hope you will sign up and make the most of their resources.

Kind regards,
