E-Safety for learners

As part of Kaplan’s ongoing commitment to safeguarding, we want all learners and apprentices to have access to the best resources and reading materials whilst learning and working in an online environment.

To this end, we recommend that learners use the link below to navigate to the Education and Training Foundation website, and create an account to sign up for the free “Side by Side” resource guide for learners. As well as video case studies, the guide also features several self-guided modules featuring helpful content and best practice guidance on online safety and several other topics.

Signing up and accessing Side by Side is a fairly straight-forward process, but instructions are below. Beneath the instructions you will find Kaplan’s safeguarding commitments, as well as our key safeguarding points of contact.
