E-Safety and Youth Arts – Artsplan Training

E-Safety and Youth Arts

14th October 2010, 10 am- 4.15 pm, Cornerhouse, Manchester

Artsplan, the training and publications department of Artswork and the in-house training provider of ENYAN (English National Youth Arts Network) are pleased to announce the launch of a NEW Youth Arts Training Course: ‘E-Safety and Youth Arts’.

As with all new Artsplan courses, we conduct a pilot session and use the valuable feedback from participants to develop and shape our courses. This new course is being run as a full day course 10 am- 4.15 pm on the 14th October 201 at Cornerhouse in Manchester.

This one-day course is essential training for anyone using or looking to use the internet, computers and other media technologies when working with young people in the arts. It will provide participants with an understanding and relevant resources to ensure that the young people they are working with can make informed decisions within digital environments.

This course raises awareness of digital footprint and examines e-safety, current legislation and the risks involved when working with new technology, including media production and social networking on the web. The course will inform participants how to incorporate e-safety into their Child Protection Policy and embed the knowledge into their organisation or project. Participants will learn about Acceptable Use Policies and will examine mobile media devices and managing personal media devices.

Rachel Preston, Artsplan Development Manager, commented: “This course will raise participant’s awareness of appropriate local, regional and national issues relating to e-safety, and will increase their confidence in their abilities to escalate and report an incident as necessary and appropriate.”

All participants will receive a certificate of attendance upon successful completion of the course and a wealth of practical resources. Artsplan is subsidising the cost of the training in return for a short 20 minute feedback session with participants at the end of the day. The cost of training has therefore been reduced to £75* (normal training charges vary from £110-£150) which includes all training resources, lunch, refreshments and certification.

For more information on the course and to book a place, please contact The Artsplan Team, on artsplan@artswork.org.uk or call 02380 682 535.
