Due to extensive demand from local primary and secondary schools, Michael Lane, the Police and Crime Commissioner will be extending his Cyber Ambassadors Scheme for another two years to 2021. The scheme, which was developed by his Youth Commission, educates children and young people on how to be safe online through peer to peer training.
More than 100 students of 12 secondary schools in Portsmouth and Hampshire have received training to become Cyber Ambassadors since the scheme was rolled out at the beginning of this year. Through peer-led education, approximately 5,000 students are ultimately benefiting from the latest knowledge on how to keep safe online.
