What they say about us

"Young people spend 32 hours per week on social media - practically a full-time job! Teens really need to know how to navigate somewhere they spend so much time and the @Beatfreeks #BeInternetCitizens webinar is showing me how to help"

Training Officer, West Midlands

"Very positive and fun way to discuss and learn about important issues that our young people are facing online."

Teacher, East of England

"Very inspirational. I am excited to get back to the classroom to try out some of these techniques and already thinking about how we will be adapting to incorporate current times."

Teacher and PHSE co-ordinator, North West England

"It was really helpful to go through the keywords and their meanings. It was also really helpful to have lots of engaging ideas to get young people actively involved."
