On Tuesday 3rd December, academy students were trained with other Oasis students to be Cyber Ambassadors.
The morning session was funded and arranged by the Office of the Hampshire Police Crime Commissioner. The training was led by Marcia Tanyanyiwa, who taught our students about a variety of safety concerns in today’s digital world – everything from cyber-bullying to financial scams, and from identity fraud to sexting. They were trained how to report any concerns, including how to use the academy’s own reporting page.
Hosting the day, Principal of Oasis Academy Mayfield, Claire Taylor said;
‘Our students are often online, and I am delighted to see them receiving this training from the Police Crime Commissioner’s team. It will undoubtedly help keep our students safe in a world with ever-changing technology’.
The students worked well together from across the three Southampton academies. At the end of the day, they each received a certificate and Cyber Ambassador badge, presented by Assistant Police Crime Commissioner, Enzo Riglia. Our new and enthusiastic Cyber Ambassadors will share their learning with other students in the Academy on Internet Safety Day (11 February 2020).
