Academies use a range of resources to better their knowledge and to pass the course. These include quizzes; webinars; lessons plans and explainer videos. These are used by all colleagues from teachers to office staff to site team members, as well as students and their families.

Maria Price, IT Teacher and Online Safety Champion at Co-op Academy Stoke said: “We know the importance of educating our communities on internet safety. We live in a digital world and with that comes both positives and negatives. And we know we can play an integral part of negating any pitfalls and dangers with our colleagues, our students and our parents and carers.”

Co-op Academy Nightingale and Co-op Academy Swinton are both now fully accredited with the remaining academies close to following suit.
