National Online Safety is first to win new award at Education Resource Awards 2023

National Online Safety was the first winner of the new Online Safety Award launched at the Education Resource Awards, held on 18 May 2023. The accolade recognises companies offering a product or resource that can “clearly demonstrate effectiveness in teaching a positive, healthy, and respectful online culture for schools and colleges”.

National Online Safety is a brand of National Education Group (NEG), which operates as The National College. A multi-award-winning provider of online professional development, NEG helps over 44,000 education establishments worldwide ensure compliance and drive up standards. 

Certified School programme: training for all stakeholders

Judges at the Education Resource Awards commented that National Online Safety’s Certified School programme “met so much of the different criteria to support online safety, in one go”. They were impressed with how the programme provides training for all stakeholders, including parents and carers, and that parental engagement can also be tracked to ensure that online safety support is being provided beyond the school.

The hugely popular Certified School programme offers a carefully curated blend of resources, including general and role-specific courses, to help schools implement a whole-school approach to online safety, aligned with UK statutory and curriculum requirements.

Schools which successfully complete our programme can showcase their commitment to online safety to the world, and evidence compliance with DfE guidance, Ofsted expectations and best practice for important stakeholders, including Ofsted, governors and parents.

Benchmark of excellence

Organised by Brilliant Marketing Solutions and the British Educational Suppliers Association (BESA), the Education Resources Awards highlight the quality and diversity of educational products and resources, excellent educational establishments and the most dedicated members of the teaching profession and supplier industry, all working together to encourage the very best in education.

Firmly established, the awards are recognised by the teaching profession as the benchmark of excellence, aiming to encourage the raising of educational services and product standards throughout the industry.

Keep up to date with the education and digital worlds

The National College provides an ongoing and responsive schedule of resources to keep the whole school community, including staff, parents and pupils, up to date with the latest changes in the education and digital worlds, including online safety risks for schools and their communities.
