PDA Diploma in Online Protection of Children

SQA's award in Internet safety was the first qualification of its kind in the UK (and, as far as we know, the EU) and we have followed that up with, what we believe to be, the world's first national qualification in online child protection.

Working with CEOP, we have developed a PDA Diploma in Online Protection & Safeguarding of Children. This Level 8 award is designed for teachers, police officers, social workers and others who work with children. It consists of two units, and provides an opportunity to learn more about the increasingly important field of online child protection.

We held the validation event for the award today. Although the Panel placed several conditions on the proposals, we're confident that we can address these quite rapidly, and have the qualificaiton available by October.
