#GoFISH with Cyber Ambassadors

In response to feedback from the Youth Commission’s Big Conversation consultation, a Cyber Ambassadors scheme has been introduced in schools.

The main aim of the scheme is to skill-up a small number of students in education settings on key online safety issues. These informed students then pass on their learning and offer helpful support to their peers promoting good digital citizenship and civility.

Written by young people for young people

Free and sustainable
Endorsed by the PCC

 

 

Cyber Ambassadors range from 8-18 years using various interactive and age-appropriate learning material to deliver cyber education.

Youth organisations can receive GoFISH (Go Find Internet Safety Help) sessions which supplement cyber knowledge using various interactive activities. Young people will go on to share acquired knowledge with their peers.

This scheme is only available for Hampshire, Isle of Wight, Portsmouth and Southampton schools and youth organisations.

 

 

Why should you sign up?

Training is delivered for free, with regularly updated resources, and there’s ongoing support and engagement.  We’ve had great feedback from teachers, including this recently:

‘We’ve had an incident today re social media and the training works – pupil was advised to block and report…they’d done it before we got told’.
