Level 1 Award in Awareness of Social Media & Online Safety Short Online Qualification

Ascentis are excited to be launching our newest Short Online Qualification, Level 1 Award in Awareness of Social Media and Online Safety.

After launching our Level 1 Award in Mental Health and Well-being, it was clear from current customer feedback that social media awareness was something equally important and they were keen to see a qualification in this area.

Developed in line with Ofsted requirements, the purpose of this qualification is to help learners understand the benefits and potential risks when using the internet and social media.

The aims of the qualification are to enable learners to:

  • Understand the impact of technologies on society
  • Recognise the issues and the potential risks that users face when online
  • Identify and manage risks and take preventative measures to stay safe online

This qualification is accompanied by interactive online resources, to sample the resources please click here.

The course can be delivered either as a classroom based, blended learning, or completely online programme. The assessment is multiple choice either online or paper based.

For more information, please contact Kirsty.sherrington@ascentis.co.uk or call 01524 845 046.
