To assist schools with the delivery of additional or expanded Online Safety programs.
Funding is provided under a partnership through the Federal Office of the Children's eSafety Commissioner, which aims to deliver additional or expanded online safety programs in Australian schools by providers that have been certified, approved or recognised by the Children's eSafety Commissioner.
The Queensland targets under this program agreement are:
124 Queensland state schools receive 988 hours of online safety programs in each of 2016, 2017 and 2018.
The list of providers certified, approved and recognised is available online.
Schools are selected against the criteria established for the project in the agreement between the Commonwealth and State Governments. Selection is in consultation with Regional Offices.
The criteria targets schools with identified online safety issues (reported to region and/or DET Cyber Safety Team) and of low socioeconomic status (based on Index of Community Socio-educational Advantage (ICSEA) weighting).
Schools receive up to $4,000 based on the cost of the Online Safety Program for each school.
Total Budget for this program is $1,372,565.
