Our MD is running a webinar on Digital Skills to Secure and Maintain Employment

Thursday, 25 February 2016, 10:30 am – 11:30 am

This webinar will explore the technologies commonly used in the workplace and their implications for employees’ security and safety. We’ll identify how these technologies benefit business, how learner experience and skills can be developed to embrace them, the policies that govern their use and the impact of positive and negative actions on staff, learners and the employer.

The Common Inspection Framework includes the requirement ‘learners have an excellent understanding of how to stay safe online and of the dangers of inappropriate use of mobile technology and social networking sites’. Provider staff need to understand the technology and its application in the workplace to ensure that their learners have ‘an excellent understanding’ of this very important subject.

Social media, collaborative communication tools and mobile devices are being used to increase productivity and connectivity in the workplace and this results in a new level of transparency across a business. The number of employees losing their jobs over a lack of understanding of company policies and their online responsibilities when using this technology is increasing. Employees’ also must be aware of their own personal online safety when in the workplace.

Training providers have a responsibility to their learners and staff to ensure they have a good understanding of their online responsibilities and e-safety to ensure sustained employment and also their responsibilities to their employer when working online.


  • Identify common workplace technologies and how they bring efficiencies to a business, including social media and online collaborative tools
  • Recognise how to develop the knowledge and experience of learners to embrace technology in the workplace
  • Identify inappropriate uses of workplace technology and legal precedence that impacts employment
  • Understand about personal e-safety and its impact in the workplace
  • Raise awareness of employers’ policies that govern workplace technology usage and how contract of employment implied terms can impact technology usage.
