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

Frontline workers and support providers

eSafety offers free training in online safety and technology-facilitated abuse.

Online safety presentations

All eSafety presentations are free and delivered by our expert education and training team. Sessions are one to two hours long and can be presented face to face for frontline workers in law enforcement, mental health services and social work.

Mental health and social workers 

In our changing digital landscape, understanding a young person’s use of technology and its impact on both online and offline behaviour is essential to effective and responsive care.

eSafety training for youth workers, social workers, counsellors and psychologists in youth-focused organisations aims to help develop digital intelligence, responsibility and resilience in young people. Find out more and register your interest.

Law enforcement

Online safety presentations tailored for law enforcement workers provide an overview of the key functions of the eSafety Commissioner and how the responsibilities of eSafety may intersect with law enforcement. 

Participants learn about eSafety’s removal powers related to serious cyberbullying, child sexual abuse and image-based abuse. Scenario-based activities may be included relating to work with young people. Find out more and register your interest.

Domestic and family violence support services

eSafety also offers specialised face-to-face workshops and an online training program for frontline domestic and family violence workers.

eSafety and WESNET (the Women’s Services Network) deliver a free two-hour workshop to frontline, specialist and support staff in the domestic violence sector. The workshops raise awareness of technology-facilitated abuse and provide staff with up-to-date skills and knowledge to support and anyone who is experiencing or has experienced domestic violence.

Online training is also available to complement and extend the face-to-face sessions.
