The Partnership

In March 2014, BT and Unicef UK came together to create The Right Click: Internet Safety Matters, an initiative aimed at empowering children to use the internet positively while staying safe and equipping parents and teachers with the tools to keep children protected online. So far, we have reached out to over 6500 children and 4000 parents. We have also trained over 1000 teachers to redeliver the workshops to even more children and parents in the future.

The Workshops

The core of the initiative is a series of interactive workshops delivered by BT volunteers in Unicef UK’s Rights Respecting primary schools. They bring together BT’s technological know-how and Unicef UK’s child rights expertise to create interactive and innovative workshops that work for children, parents and teachers. Watch our video to find out more!

In the workshops, parents and children can explore together:

  • How they connect with others online
  • Likes and dislikes about the internet
  • How to get the most out of the internet and use it positively
  • Ways in which people can misuse the information shared online
  • How e-safety and internet access matter for the promotion and protection of children’s rights.

To make the impact sustainable, the BT volunteers also run a Brief the Teacher session for the teachers who are hosting the workshop so that they can redeliver the workshops independently in the future.

The workshops are delivered for free in Unicef UK’s Rights Respecting primary schools. The volunteers spend approximately two hours at the school, including a Brief the Teacher session and a parent and child workshop, lasting one hour each.

Frequently Asked Questions

Why e-safety?

Children have the right to access information (Article 17), whether that be through print media, television or online. Children and young people are using the internet to learn, play and socialise more and more, so it is essential that children are empowered to take advantage of the many benefits the internet has in a safe and informed way, whilst respecting their right to privacy (Article 16) and their right to protection (Article 19).

That’s why Unicef UK has teamed up with BT to provide children, parents and teachers the support they need to help stay safe online.

What is The Right Click: Internet Safety Matters?

The Right Click: Internet Safety Matters is a partnership between Unicef UK’s Rights Respecting Schools Award and BT.

Together, we have developed an interactive workshop for our Rights Respecting primary schools, The Right Click: Internet Safety Matters.  These workshops empower children and young people to become confident digital citizens and help their parents and teachers to keep them safe online.

Since March 2014, BT’s volunteers have delivered over 400 workshops to Rights Respecting primary schools across the UK. The volunteers also spend time with teachers at each school to deliver a ‘Brief the Teacher’ session, allowing them to redeliver workshops in the future.

Watch our video to find out more!

What is the Brief the Teacher session?

The Brief the Teacher session prepares teachers to re-deliver The Right Click: Internet Safety Matters workshop independently in the future. This session does not include technical e-safety training.

During the session, the BT volunteers spend up to an hour with one or two teachers reviewing the workshop presentation and activity sheets. This is an opportunity for teachers to ask any questions they have about online safety features.

If you would like more than two teachers to attend the Brief the Teacher session, please discuss with the RRSA Central Team.

Teachers will be provided with the workshop materials used by the BT volunteers, so that the school can re-run the workshop as many times as they would like. Given the nature of the subject, the materials are updated regularly. These are always to schools that have hosted the workshop.

Who are the internet workshops for?

The workshops are for primary schools involved in the Unicef UK Rights Respecting Schools Award.

Which age groups are most suitable?

The workshops have been developed for primary schools, aimed at children aged eight and above. This is because the presentation includes a video produced by Child Exploitation and Online Protection (CEOP), which is designed for an audience of 8-11 year olds.

However, everyone is welcome to attend, and may wish to leave the room whilst the video is playing.

We are not a Unicef UK Rights Respecting School. Can we still book a workshop for our school?

No, unfortunately the workshops are only for primary schools involved in the Rights Respecting Schools Award. You can watch more about RRSA, as well as register online to begin your Rights Respecting Journey. You can also call us to find out more on 0300 330 5580 or email the RRSA Team at rrsa@unicef.org.uk.

My school has just registered to become Rights Respecting. Can we already book a workshop?

Yes, you do not need to have achieved the Recognition of Commitment (ROC), Level 1 or Level 2 Award to take advantage of our e-safety workshops, but we do recommend you have made some progress with introducing the Award to the school community and raising awareness of the UN Convention on the Rights of the Child with teachers, pupils and parents before we come to deliver the workshop to children and parents.

I'm a teacher at a Rights Respecting Secondary School, can we host a workshop?

Not at the moment. Unfortunately the workshops are currently only available to primary schools. However, if you would like to help us develop the workshop for a secondary setting we want to hear from you, so please get in touch.

What does the workshop cover?

The workshop brings together Unicef UK’s child rights expertise with BT’s technological know-how around internet safety.

The BT volunteers will introduce activities to begin a discussion around online safety, which parents can continue at home with their child.

Together parents and children can explore:
• The devices and apps they use to connect online
• Likes and dislikes about the internet
• Ways in which people can misuse the information shared online
• Positive aspects of the internet
• How e-safety and internet access matter for the promotion and protection of children’s rights.

How much does it cost?

The workshops and the materials involved are provided free of charge. Unicef UK and BT have trained volunteers from BT to deliver the first workshop at your school.

How long does the workshop last?

The workshop with children and parents lasts for one hour. The workshop is preceded by a Brief the Teacher session with one or two teachers, which also lasts for about one hour. In total, the BT volunteers will spend approximately two hours at your school.

We have found it works best if the workshop starts at the end of the school day, when parents would usually collect their children.

The Brief the Teacher session should take place immediately before the workshop with children and parents begins.

How many people can attend?

For our workshops to work effectively, it’s important that parents and children are able to sit together in groups. This may affect the room chosen to hold the workshop in and the number of parents and children involved.

In our experience, the optimum numbers at a workshop are between 35-40 children and adults in total. If you would like to invite more than this number, please let us know in advance so that this can be discussed with the BT volunteers who are going to deliver the workshop.

How do I book a workshop for my school?

If you are a Rights Respecting primary school and would like to host The Right Click: Internet Safety Matters workshop, please look at the dates available in your area (above).

You will then need to complete a booking form, which you can download from this page, and email it to us at rrsa@unicef.org.uk.

We have already hosted an Internet Safety workshop with BT and Unicef UK. Can we host another one?

No, each Rights Respecting Primary School is entitled to one workshop each. The BT volunteers run the Brief the Teacher session before the parent/child workshop, to provide one or two teachers the knowledge to re-deliver the workshop themselves in the future. This helps make the workshop and its impact more sustainable.
