Tips on how to stay safe online during the COVID-19 pandemic

National School Chaplaincy Program (NSCP)

Webinar-based training for NSCP-registered school chaplains to assist in preventing and responding to cyberbullying.

eSafety's professional learning program for chaplains registered through the National School Chaplaincy Program provides evidence-based, targeted advice on preventing and responding to cyberbullying.

The program covers the latest online safety research, case studies and strategies to assist school chaplains to integrate online safety into their student wellbeing programs and intervention.

The program requires participation in a three-hour live webinar session and completion of an online quiz. To participate, register your attendance at one of the webinar sessions listed below.

Within 24 hours of participating in the webinar, you will be sent a 15-minute online quiz to complete the three hours of activity. All chaplains who complete the program will receive a summative infographic containing key learnings and a certificate of participation. Your successful completion will be registered.

Please note:

Chaplains not funded under the National School Chaplaincy Program will be able to register for the Teacher Professional learning program.

Technical information

Shortly before the webinar you will be sent an email containing a ‘Join Webinar’ button. Click on this to attend the presentation. You should plan on attending the presentation about 5 minutes before it is scheduled to start to make sure you don't miss anything.

GoToWebinar (our webinar delivery platform) should guide you through the setup process at this point. If it does not, there are a few things you can check:

  • If you have a personal or network firewall, make sure that GoToMeeting/GoToWebinar is not being blocked.
  • If this is the first time you're attending a webinar through GoToMeeting/GoToWebinar, and the application does not launch after you click 'Join Webinar' (if you don't see the GoToWebinar control panel), look for the 'launch software' button on the page.
  • If you are still having trouble, try using a different browser (Firefox, Safari, Edge or Chrome), and click 'Join Webinar' again.
