The team at SWGfL are excited to release ProjectEVOLVE EDU - a brand-new training service for educators, supporting community wide professional development. Since ProjectEVOLVE released in 2019, we have seen first-hand the importance of ensuring professionals are fully equipped to educate their students about digital development and online safety awareness. From the engagement and data we have seen, it is clear that online safety is becoming more established within organisational settings and as such, the requirement for more professional learning is becoming evident.
Our own research has consistently shown that effective staff training is lacking in a large proportion of schools which can greatly impact performance in meeting acceptable online safety standards. To support organisations with this, ProjectEVOLVE EDU has been developed to assist professionals with their training needs, providing an online video training platform that guides them through essential areas, tests understanding and details progress.
