HeadStart Online Resilience Tool

The Online Resilience Tool provides a practical way for professionals to assess young people’s online behaviour and help them make decisions about whether that behaviour represents risk of harm.

 

The Tool was developed as part of the Digital work-stream of the HeadStart Kernow programme in partnership with University of Bournemouth and the Professionals Online Safety Helpline. In total around 1000 children and young people in Cornwall were involved in the development process through workshops and discussion groups over a three year period.

 

The Online Resilience Tool is available to download for free. The resource and online training have been assessed and certified by the CPD Certification Service. 

If you want to know more about how to use the tool you can sign up for our free, CPD UK Accredited training through the Book Now page

This training covers how to use the tool to assess young people's online behaviour; what to do when you have identified a behaviour and online activities and the law. The course takes approximately 3 hours and includes e-learning and a video call. 


Alternatively, to find out more about using the categories in the tool, have a look at our supporting documents on Harmful, Potentially Harmful and Not Harmful Behaviours. We have also included a short podcast for each category to help you understand the tool.
