With new threats, increased duties and declining support, the Safeguarding Teenagers conference run by Optimus Education on the 18th May in Birmingham, will provide practical strategies and expert guidance for protecting students aged 14–19.

Topics will cover extremism, post-16 homelessness, mental health issues, sexting, Ofsted and staff training.

Understanding the challenges and responsibility of safeguarding older students, lead sponsor NetSupport will be presenting about “Bridging the gap between IT Management and Safeguarding: Identifying Risks, Spotting Trends and Delivering Proactive Safeguarding Support.”
