Gender and tech abuse: exploring online gender identities, risks and relationships


24/06/2020 09:30






Update to our learning programme

As part of our organisational response to the COVID-19 virus, Children in Scotland has adapted our training and events programme to a digital webinar format for the foreseeable future.

Our webinar programme can be found here.

We're running this webinar as an abbreviated version of the full-day training course detailed below, due to the coronavirus outbreak.

We believe it is important that the sector continues to build resilient networks, share helpful resources and develop the skills our workforce needs to provide high-quality support to children and young people.

As such we will be rescheduling and/or changing the format of our upcoming events. Please note that our Learning and Events team will be in touch with everyone who has booked a place at an April - June event to confirm arrangements.

Our office is now closed and staff will be working from home – you can contact the team using this email

Key learning:
