JISC Regional Support Centres offer advice and support in developing and implementing good practice and appropriate procedures for providers across the sector. The RSC in your region will be able to support your organisation directly to make good use of this online resource as a strategic tool. They will also be able to offer both strategic and practical support and respond to specific sector and regional issues through:

  • Workshops on e-responsible behaviours

  • Help in assessing your e-safety practice

  • Formal and informal CPD opportunities 

  • Guidance on using this online resource strategically


Here we have brought together the best resources for raising awareness and planning e-safety which will support a range of roles across the sector. They include resources for self-assessing personal and organisational risk, raising awareness and skills with learners and staff as well as advice on meeting legal and inspection requirements. Many of the resources have originated in the schools sector and some have been specifically adapted for use in FE like the Becta: Safeguarding Learners in a Digital World resources Others will need further development based on your own experience and provision. 
There is some specific guidance for providers in Work-based Learning and Adult and Community Learning and will find the links to DirectGov local government resources  and other relevant resources by searching the tags. You could begin by making contact with their Local Authority Safeguarding Boards (LASB) for specific advice. There is a section on safeguarding best practice on the Excellence Gateway which includes examples of good practice and resources from across the sector. You will also find resources to support eSafety learner inductions and staff CPD.


Getting Started:

The SWGfL online e-safety planner will assist you in looking at the risks for your organisation no matter how small. JISC have highlighted 6 resources specifically to help combat cybercrime which we have explored in more detail on the legal section of this website. Please visit the JISC RSC website at www.jiscrsc.ac.uk to contact a local RSC e-advisor who can support you with eSafety.


Specialist Colleges may have something to contribute to the disability specific resources being developed by JISC TechDis which will support Independent Specialist College's and mainstream provision for vulnerable learners. There are resources for Specialist Colleges and for providers working with vulnerable learners on the TechDis website . A "pathway" to support the use of this resource by ISC's has been developed by TechDis.


Help for teachers and individuals:

The UK Safer Internet Centre Helpline aims to resolve issues professionals face about themselves, such as protecting professional identity, and working with young people in relation to online safety. They are happy to help anyone working with children or young people in this context. Contact them on 0844 381 4772. They offer advice based on each detailed enquiry but please see recent generic advice on facebook  and the FAQ's page.



The Website has been organised into easy to navigate sections which can be accessed using the side bar on the right hand side of the page or the links provided below. You can also search using keywords or by using the 'Tags' on the 'Search Page'
